Cleft Palate Repair: China "Last year we were very happy to have a baby girl, but to our surprise the baby had a cleft. We couldn't afford surgery and a girl in China with a deformity has no future. Thank you for your unselfish help and for giving our daughter a bright future. We're released from this big burden! We are so happy to see a new child after the surgery and we will try our best to provide a better life for her."
Well Water Installation: Ghana Community relied on an old, uncovered well as only source of water. "Many attempts to convince authorities to come to our aid failed because we could not raise the money. Thank you for bringing us drinking water and showing us God's love. We are greatly relieved because the old well was unclean and a threat to children at play.
Child Surgery: Henan Province With only $200 per year income, parents nearly abandoned this child believing they could not offer him a future. 7-Year old Zhuang had issues associated with an un-united upper palate deformity. Surgery was provided at People's Hospital of Anyang. "The hole in our child's mouth was repaired which has given him an entirely new life... we will never forget this!"
New Well: Suhum Kraboa This community had a well with garbage and other contaminants lodged inside. Work involved de-silting and deepening the well. Concrete work was done at the base, walls were scraped, and plastered with new mortar. A new concrete cover and new Nira hand pump was installed for dispensing clean water.
Cleft Lip Repair: Luoyang City Xinggou's Family of 4 lives in great poverty. He lost his mother at the age of 2 and all of the family rely on the father for income and support. Surgery was not an option. Teaming up with Operation Blessing, we were able to provide for the total cost of surgery through the First Hospital of Luoyang and Dr. Tingjin Wang.
