LWB Healing Homes Program
Our healing homes program
LWB's Healing Homes Program helps orphaned and abandoned children with a wide variety of medical issues.
Our healing homes are staffed with trained nannies who devote their time to the careful nurturing of these wonderful children.
- Heartbridge Healing Home
Our Heartbridge Healing Home 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.
- Anhui Healing Home
Through our medical work in China, we have realized that in order to thrive orphaned children born with medical needs require one-on-one care they often cannot receive in an institution. Our Anhui Healing Home welcomes babies born with a wide variety of medical conditions into a safe and warm home environment.
- Mukono Baby Room
LWB is working with the Tender Hearts Baby Home in Uganda to provide children in the Mukono Baby Room with healing care. This home for abandoned and vulnerable children is committed to family reunification whenever possible. Many of the babies in this home were found in malnourished, fragile conditions and have a wide variety of medical needs.
Featured success story:
Nico from China
Late last year an orphanage in Jiangxi Province contacted us about a preemie in their care who was not thriving. At three months of age, he weighed just five pounds and was suffering from a chronic upset stomach. We welcomed him to our Anhui Healing Home, where we hoped our nannies would be able to help him gain weight and begin to develop as he should. Nico spent much of his first month at the healing home catching up on his sleep and building up his strength. Within his first few weeks of attentive care and drinking high-quality formula, Nico’s stomach issues had resolved, and he had started gaining weight. Nico’s inner spirit is strong, but his heart is gentle. Gentle Nico has become more responsive to his caregivers and began making great eye contact and “talking back” to the nannies. Over just a few months' period, Nico gained over six pounds. His nannies tell us that he is a delight and only cries when he is hungry or needs to be changed. Nico came down with pneumonia earlier this year but has continued his battle to overcome his circumstances. Sometimes the tiniest heroes of all are the ones who inspire us in the biggest way.
