LWB Medical Program - July 2015LWB was founded after a group of parents helped a young boy receive heart surgery. Since then LWB's Medical Program has provided surgeries and other medical care for thousands of orphaned and impoverished children from provinces throughout China.

Our medical program's goal is to provide the highest quality care for the children entrusted to us. Our decisions are based, first and foremost, on what is in the best interest of the child, as well as balancing the constraints of location, ability, finances, and long-term care options available.

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

Our surgical costs include:

  • A discounted rate on surgery with one of our top-rated partner hospitals in China (prices vary for similar surgeries due to region)
  • Travel costs for the child and a caregiver
  • Daily fees for the caregiver staying with the child to provide a sense of security
  • A small surcharge to pay our China hospital managers, who provide us with photos and updates on the child's condition while in the hospital

If you sponsor a surgery, you will receive:

  • Updates as your sponsored child's surgery is funded
  • Notification when your sponsored child has been moved for surgery
  • Progress reports during your sponsored child's hospitalization
  • Photos and updates of your sponsored child

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