Patrick: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Patrick is a little guy with great timing: He arrived at his orphanage just when several LWB volunteers were wrapping up a visit there. He was a newborn with the special need of anal atresia and needed immediate surgery. Patrick was just in time to hitch a ride with our volunteers to a prominent children’s hospital, where he had surgery that evening.

Surgery was a success, and several weeks later tiny Patrick was discharged to LWB’s Heartbridge Healing Home.¬†During the admission process a heart murmur was noted, and ASD and VSD heart defects were quickly diagnosed with the home’s portable¬†ultrasound machine. Patrick is doing well, but now he will require heart surgery before his next two operations for anal atresia.

We are so happy to have Patrick in our care at Heartbridge where he can receive the loving attention he needs to get through all of his upcoming procedures.

Patrick is in need of additional sponsors. Sponsorships are $50 per month, or $25 per month for a shared sponsorship. Patrick’s supporters will receive monthly updates and photos. We would love to have you join Patrick’s team!
