LWB Healing Homes Program
Our healing homes program
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.
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
Jerome from China
Jerome was born in 2017 with Down Syndrome and a heart defect. Though sometimes a needed surgery can wait for a baby to gain strength, Jerome was not gaining weight and was continually ill. He had emergency heart repair at the tender age of three months old.
When Jerome was admitted to LWB's China Healing Home after being discharged from the hospital, he weighed just six pounds at four months of age. That’s the size of a small newborn! Jerome desperately needed some focused care and feeding with specialized formula. For many months, we monitored his weight carefully as it inched up slowly and he began to gain strength. We all cheered when Jerome began to hit milestones and interact with his nanny. After his first birthday, Jerome seemed to put his development in overdrive and was quickly getting around the home in a walker, crawling, and, just before his second birthday, taking a few tottering steps.
Jerome is now three years old and is often referred to by the nannies in a loving way as "naughty." He sometimes will swipe toys from the other children or toss his shoes across the room. But Jerome also has a gentle side and enjoys playing with the nannies and children, "reading" picture books, and helping out with simple tasks. With the loving support of his sponsors and the great care of his nannies, this little man truly has thrived at the healing home. We all hope that someday he’ll have a family of his own who will be entertained by his antics and enjoy his warm hugs.
