In our efforts towards orphan prevention, LWB made a decision over a decade ago to stand beside impoverished families who are desperate to obtain life-changing medical care for their children. Through our Unity Initiative, LWB supporters have saved the lives of many children and spread the powerful message to their families that people truly do care about them. Three of those children are:
Violet, whose heart condition was so urgent that her parents took her by train to Hefei the very day we told them that LWB could help with her surgery. The youngest of two children in a poor farming family, Violet's heart operation could not wait a moment longer.
Ophelia, whose father felt alone and defeated until he learned of LWB's Unity program. As a single father of two children who is also caring for his elderly parents, he was very relieved and thankful to receive the news that LWB would fund his daughter's critical surgery.
Celine, whose mother reached out to LWB for help in healing her infant daughter, diagnosed with a TOF heart defect, after her husband abandoned the family. This little one has already been through so much, and we are proud to stand by her and her mom.
Your support today means we can say "YES" to helping the next families who ask for our help. Together, we can make a lifelong difference to critically ill children, like Violet, Ophelia, and Celine, and their families who love them. Together, we can stand with impoverished families who never give up hope.
