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.

You can make a difference in the life of a child through a one-time or monthly donation to our healing homes program or by sponsoring a child. Donors will receive regular updates and photos.

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

blind child in China being held

Harlow from China

In spring 2017, we were contacted by an adoption agency about a little girl on a waiting child list with severe congenital glaucoma. We were able to send Harlow for an eye exam, but her orphanage was hesitant to let us provide any treatment. For the next two years, we continued to check on this little girl, who slowly began withdrawing from the world around her due to being confined to a crib. We were overjoyed in mid-2020 when her orphanage finally agreed that Harlow could come into our full-time care at our China Healing Home.

Since then, the healing home nannies patiently worked with Harlow to teach her to eat. She gained 16 much-needed pounds in two years! The nannies taught her to accept touch, sit without support, stand on her legs which were slowly gaining strength, walk holding onto furniture, and now walk short distances without help. She has gone from screaming through baths to giggling through them, and she has learned to play with the other children, her favorite being Mack.  When Mack is in his crib or raised play area, she scoots her chair next to him and spends more than an hour playing with him. Harlow has learned to speak a few words and is now very quick to smile.

We are so thankful that Harlow is thriving at our healing home and for our supporters who make such a wonderful difference in her life and in the lives of some other very special children.
