Welcoming Wyatt and Nikolas to our Healing Home

In late January, a premature baby boy was abandoned and brought to an orphanage.  He was clearly experiencing breathing distress and was rushed several hours away to the provincial capital by ambulance. Upon arrival, he needed to be placed immediately on a ventilator. Thankfully, Wyatt showed us his grit by only needing specialized breathing support for a few days. We were then able to see his precious face more clearly.

Stories of Hope: Tobias

In June of this year, an LWB team member stopped at an orphanage to pick up a little girl we were hoping to help medically. He thought it would be a fairly routine trip, as we had all the permissions already in place. While waiting for her final paperwork, he walked over to one of the orphanage cribs and saw a thin little boy who was clearly in distress.

Stories of Hope: Ryder

Why hello, Gerber baby. Look at you with your squeezable cheeks, bright eyes, and a hint of a double chin.  Look at you all comfy and safe, with warm blankets, loving nannies, and arms ready to hold you. What a journey the past year has been, and how we wish you didn’t have to make it.

Voices of Uganda: Deborah

As we spoke, she was either covering her face and giggling, or swelling with tears. Deborah is a woman of great joy and compassion, and I liked her right away. She works twelve-hour days, from 6 AM to 6 PM, as one of the cooks for the Mukono Healing Home in Uganda. For eight years, she has been working hard at this job. And to her work, she pours out an abundance of skill and heart.

Children’s Day 2020

June 1 is International Children’s Day, a time set aside to promote the welfare and well-being of children around the world.  In China, this day is usually a favorite for children living in orphanages as they are often treated to a special meal or receive gifts of fruit or sweets.  Many orphanages will take the children in their care to parks or other outdoor locations as well.  This year in China COVID-19 restrictions meant that many of the celebrations for orphaned children, including the kids in our healing home, were held indoors.

Voices From Uganda: Victor

He sweeps, straightens, wipes down toys, and takes out the garbage. In a home full of babies, there is much to do, and his work is vital. Essential workers. Our focus on them is sharper right now, isn’t it? COVID-19 has renewed our gratitude for those who provide the basic services that our world needs. We have a stronger grasp on how life would slow to a stop without the services they provide. And for a home full of vulnerable children in Uganda, there are many essential workers. Victor is the custodian at the Mukono Baby Home, a healing home which is supported in part by Love Without Boundaries.
