LWB is excited to be able to help the children of India. With 31 million orphaned children and many more children who live in impoverished families, the needs and our opportunities to help are endless. We are happy to have gotten started in the following ways:

  • Arranging life-saving cardiac operations for children living in extreme poverty
  • Giving children with HIV in West Bengal the support required to live and grow in a healing home with specialized care that meets their needs in a holistic way
  • Working with a partner organization in Odisha to pilot foster care for children who would otherwise be placed in an institution
  • Providing life-changing surgery to children born with cleft lip in partnership with the local NGO Mission Smile
  • Providing emergency food relief and medical supplies to children in need during the COVID crisis in West Bengal, Odisha, and Bihar
