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 medical care program or by sponsoring a child. Donors will receive periodic updates and photos for 6 months for donations less than $300 and for 12 months for donations of $300 or more.


Surgeries & Medical Care

LWB funds 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

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

Unity Initiative

Additionally LWB provides medical care through our Unity Initiative, which helps children living in extremely impoverished conditions. 

One of the goals of this program, particularly 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. Our first ever cardiac exchange trip is being held in May 2018 in Anhui, China. In 2017 our cleft exchange trip was held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

GriffinFeatured success story:
Griffin from China

Griffin has proven himself a “tiny warrior,” overcoming the most difficult beginnings. Abandoned in critical condition with an often deadly infection called NEC, he was severely malnourished and clinging to life. Without emergency medical care, he would not have survived. After spending two months in the hospital, Griffin came to our Heartbridge Healing Home weighing just over 5 pounds at 3 months of age. With lots of nurturing care from our nannies, by the end of 2017 he had more than doubled his weight and was charming everyone with his sunny disposition. His transformation was only possible because of our supporters, and we give thanks that his whole future is now ahead of him.
