LWB’s Healing Homes Program helps orphaned and abandoned children in China and India with a wide variety of medical issues. Through this essential program, children facing medical challenges receive full-time, nurturing care.
Healing homes efforts
China Healing Home
LWB’s China Healing Home program includes our Anhui Healing Home, located inside of a major rehabilitation hospital, and our Heartbridge Healing Home, a satellite branch near the hospital. Both locations work together to provide the best individualized care possible for each child.
- Our Anhui Healing Home location provides physical therapy and rehabilitation treatment to children who have been identified as benefiting from additional services, as well as welcoming children from the Heartbridge location who may need care in a hospital setting.
- Our Heartbridge Healing Home location is dedicated to helping some of China’s most medically fragile orphaned children. Specialized care allows them to gain weight and strength before life-saving operations and to recover post-op in a safe and loving environment. The children are monitored closely by medical staff and receive the highest level of care available.
Pari Healing Home in India
LWB helps children with HIV who have been abandoned or relinquished through this full-time care project. The children receive not only the medical care and nutrition needed, but also emotional and educational support to improve the quality of their lives.
Due to the sensitive nature of the children’s histories in LWB’s Pari Healing Home, photos will not include their faces. However sponsors will know they are making a real difference in these children’s lives by providing them a safe and caring environment, allowing these deserving children to grow and thrive.
Featured success story
Avery from China
Avery was born in spring 2020 with a multitude of special needs, including a heart defect, an ear malformation, and a larynx anomaly, which led to choking and frequent bouts of pneumonia.
Avery was admitted to our China Healing Home program directly from the hospital after being treated for pneumonia. At 4 months of age, he was a tiny boy, weighing just 11 pounds. Our nannies were ready to work their magic!
Soon, Avery was eating and sleeping well and beginning to hit milestones with an “I can do it” attitude to boot! The older children in the home loved playing with this sweet and adorable baby, teaching him skills and clapping for his progress. At just over a year old, he was walking, feeding himself, and babbling non-stop. Now coming up on age 2, Avery runs around the home and is a wonderful combination of sweet, helpful, and a bit naughty. Just what we love to see in a 2-year-old!
