LWB Medical Care Program

LWB Medical Care Program

Our Medical Care Program

LWB's Medical Program has provided surgeries and medical care for thousands of orphaned and impoverished children. 

Our medical program's goal is to provide the highest quality care for the children who come into our hands.

 

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

Programs

Surgeries & Medical Care

We fund many types of surgeries and treatment, including:

  • Heart surgery
  • Cleft lip and palate repair
  • Colorectal repairs
  • Tumor and neurologic issues
  • General surgeries, such as hernia repair and intestinal issues
  • Preemie care
  • Orthopedic care and evaluation

LWB provides medical and surgical care for orphaned children, with the ultimate hope that it will allow them to be chosen for adoption.

Unity Fund

We also provide medical care through our Unity Fund, which helps children living in extremely impoverished conditions. 

One of the many goals of this program, especially in China and India, is to help prevent future abandonment by desperate families who have no way to provide the medical care their children need. 

Medical Exchanges

LWB holds medical exchanges between doctors and surgeons in the United States and physicians and hospitals in the countries where we work. In 2017 our cleft medical exchange will be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Learn More

LWB Medical Care Story

Featured Success Story: 
Phillip from China

Last spring LWB was contacted by an orphanage in southern China about a baby boy in their care with a serious heart condition. Phillip had been born with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), a complex congenital heart defect which is normally repaired surgically shortly after birth. We moved little Phillip to a top cardiac hospital in Shanghai, and everyone on his hospital ward quickly fell in love with his outgoing and lively disposition, while also realizing he was a very sick little boy as his lips were quite blue from a lack of oxygen.
