Anhui Healing Home
LWB's Anhui Healing Home (AHH) was the very first outreach home in China devoted to caring exclusively for vulnerable babies born with cleft needs. Being born with cleft lip and/or palate is more than a cosmetic birth defect; for many children in orphanages, it can be life-threatening. We have learned that the key to helping these children is to give them the one-on-one attention they need. We work together with social welfare institutions to offer these little ones the best possible chance at health and healing. In 2011 AHH expanded to begin helping children with other medical needs.
The AHH has 12 beds in a cozy, home-like environment. We accept babies in need of intensive care from orphanages throughout Anhui Province. The babies receive loving care and high quality formula. Cleft bottles provide an extra boost for babies born with cleft lip and palate. Our nannies care for only two to three babies each and have been specially trained to help these children become healthy so they can receive surgeries. LWB partners with Anhui Children's Hospital to provide the children's surgeries and medical care, as well as post-operative care, until they are healed. Once fully healed, the children are returned to their hometowns, usually to foster care, with the best chance of receiving an adoptive family. With your help, the lives of 30 to 40 children each year can be changed.
We Need Your Help
In order to fully fund the care the children receive in our Anhui Healing Home, we need several sponsors for each child. Child sponsorships are $50 per month, or $25 per month for a shared sponsorship. Each sponsor will receive a monthly update and photos of their sponsored child.
We also gratefully accept both one-time and ongoing monthly donations in any amount to support our Anhui Healing Home. These funds are used for the most urgent needs that arise. Monthly updates will be sent to general donors.
Thank you for partnering with us to help these wonderful children!
