If there is one thing that can be said of Global Partners in Life, and the work we are doing at the special needs orphanage we support in China, it is meeting needs. Unfortunately, there are so many needs to be met!
Sometimes the needs are very simple and small, like having a blanket to keep you warm. As you can see in the picture below, our little princess likes to use the blanket we gave her as a veil!
If you look closely, you can see that this little girl also had a very serious medical need which Global Partners in Life met. We provided funding for the surgery she had to repair a hole in her heart. It was a desperate situation for her, as her lips and fingernails were blue, and she became very lethargic. There were complications during her surgery, and she stayed on a ventilator for a month following her surgery, which drove up her medical bills. I am thankful to say that Global Partners in Life was able to cover the unexpected expenses.
It is rare for the children at the orphanage to have something they can call their own, so they were very excited when everyone had their own blankets. Did I mention that it gets painfully cold in the city where they live?
Global Partners in Life is very thankful for our donors, because through their generosity, we are able to meet the needs of the special needs orphans and put smiles on their faces. I receive great joy from helping the children, and I would like for you to experience the same great feeling as well!
