Urgent heart needs

For the first time in LWB history, we have had to turn away a child in need of urgent heart surgery due to a lack of medical funding. I know what a very, very difficult moment this was for our medical team.

I know that so many orphanages are contacting us now each day for help that we most likely will never be able to keep up with the number of children who are waiting for life saving surgery....but to me that just means we have to work even harder to spread the word that it truly IS possible to save the life of a child by giving whatever one can.

I have put together a short video with some of the heart children we have been asked to help this year. A huge thank you to Lance Musgrave for allowing me to use his song, "Waiting", to help show that thousands of children do just that each day. In orphanages throughout China, children are waiting right now for their chance at life. You can view it on Youtube at

No donation to our medical program is too small. Every dollar given is used to help bring the gift of healing to some of the most vulnerable children in the world. You can visit our medical sponsorship page today at
