LWB’s Preemie and Special Formula Fund
LWB’s Heartbridge Healing Home in Beijing is dedicated to helping some of China’s most medically fragile orphaned children. These children are provided specialized care to allow them to gain weight and strength before life-saving operations.
Some of the babies have an especially hard time digesting formula and therefore gain weight very slowly. We make use of special formulas for these children, such as Peptamen, which are designed to be high in calories but easy on a tiny baby’s tummy. Currently several children are receiving Peptamen formula. The cost of all formula in China has recently risen quite dramatically, and now a case of Peptamen (24 cans) costs $1,000.
Donations to LWB’s Nutrition Program’s Preemie and Special Formula Fund make it possible for us to provide special formulas such as Peptamen to our Heartbridge babies, as well as to other children with special nutritional needs. Your donations are needed to help us keep the formula flowing. Every dollar is greatly appreciated.
Sponsors will receive quarterly updates and photos. Your support will help give children with special nutritional needs the best chance of healthy lives.
