LWB's Healing Homes Program helps orphaned children with serious medical issues needing specialized care. These children are extremely vulnerable, due to being born with medical needs that often cannot be met in an institutional setting. LWB's healing homes are staffed with specially trained nannies who devote their time to the careful nurturing of these children.
Heartbridge Healing Home
Our Heartbridge Healing Home facility, located inside the New Hope Foundation in Beijing, was our very first healing home, opened in 2006. This home 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, as well as a safe and loving environment to recover from complex surgeries. The children are monitored closely by medical staff and receive the highest level of care available.
Anhui Healing Home
Through our medical work in China, we have realized that orphaned children born with cleft lip and palate often fail to thrive due to their inability to feed properly. In 2008 LWB opened its Anhui Cleft Healing Home, welcoming babies born with cleft needs into a safe and warm environment. In 2011 this healing home expanded to begin helping children with other medical conditions and became our Anhui Healing Home.
Loving ARMS Healing Home
Our newest healing home, scheduled to open July 1, 2015, aims to provide the absolute best medical care possible to children born with anorectal malformations (ARMs). We believe the Loving ARMs Healing Home is the perfect name for a warm and safe place for orphaned children with anal atresia to live. Our new home will be staffed by specially trained caregivers who understand both colostomy care and dilation therapy, and we will be working with bowel management specialists to make sure each child gets on the best path possible for a healthy future.
