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.
Henan Healing Home
An additional healing home, the Henan Healing Home, opened in 2009, concentrating on providing nurturing care and surgeries for cleft-affected children in one of China's poorest provinces. This home was closed in February 2013 following an unrelated tragic fire that occurred in the Lankao village. As a result a number of private homes in Henan Province were closed. A final update on the home can be accessed from the Henan Healing Home page.
True Children's Healing Home (formerly Fujian Healing Home)
The True Children's Healing Home (formerly known as the Fujian Healing Home) opened in late 2010 and serves children with cleft and other medical needs. As with our other healing homes, this home has specially trained nannies to nurture children and provide them the opportunity to grow, gain strength, receive surgeries, and recover in a safe, loving environment.
