Journey to Odisha, India

LWB’s work in India to date has been primarily in the medical field, helping with rural medical care and partnering with Mission Smile for cleft surgeries. Our hope for many years has been to expand LWB’s foster care model from China, Cambodia, and Uganda to help orphaned children in India as well. While it’s difficult to get an exact count on the number of orphaned children in India, a number frequently cited is between 20 and 25 million. Less than 1% of those children will ever find a permanent home, leaving countless numbers to spend their entire childhoods in crowded institutions. We would love to do our small part to help change that, as we believe every child born deserves to be raised in a caring family.

Cambodia: Part Five

Over the last few days I have shared part of my experiences from Cambodia and some of the real challenges that impoverished children face in this region of the world.  While some of the issues are similar to those we face in China (malnutrition, lack of medical care, “left behind” children fending for themselves), others are critical problems we haven’t faced before.  I know most of us have read about the atrocities of child sex trafficking, but to hear the stories in person and to learn that many of the families I met have been impacted in some way was truly sobering.
