LWB Medical Care Program
Our Medical Care Program
LWB's Medical Program has provided surgeries and medical care for thousands of orphaned and impoverished children.
Our medical program's goal is to provide the highest quality care for the children who come into our hands.
- Surgeries & Medical Care
We fund many types of surgeries and treatment, including:
- Heart surgery
- Cleft lip and palate repair
- Colorectal repairs
- Tumor and neurologic issues
- General surgeries, such as hernia repair and intestinal issues
- Preemie care
- Orthopedic care and evaluation
LWB provides medical and surgical care for orphaned children, with the ultimate hope that it will allow them to be chosen for adoption.
- Unity Fund
We also provide medical care through our Unity Fund, which helps children living in extremely impoverished conditions.
Featured Success Story:
Phillip from China
Last spring LWB was contacted by an orphanage in southern China about a baby boy in their care with a serious heart condition. Phillip had been born with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), a complex congenital heart defect which is normally repaired surgically shortly after birth. We moved little Phillip to a top cardiac hospital in Shanghai, and everyone on his hospital ward quickly fell in love with his outgoing and lively disposition, while also realizing he was a very sick little boy as his lips were quite blue from a lack of oxygen.
