Warm Coats For A Cold Day
by Suzanne Damstedt
LWB's Orphanage Assistance and Nutrition Programs work to meet the tangible needs of orphaned children. Often supporters contact us about making a donation to help a specific orphanage. In these cases we contact the orphanage to inquire about their specific needs; i.e., diapers, clothing, formula, etc. Other times supporters choose to make donations to our orphanage assistance program's general fund, which is always much appreciated as those donations can be used wherever needed. Some of our orphanage assistance program's ongoing projects are to provide extra caregivers at two orphanages and doctor assistance at two other orphanages. Additionally we have ongoing projects providing formula at several orphanages, as well as provide special formula for children with individualized dietary and growth needs.
Coats For Kids One of our favorite projects we do each year is buying coats for children in LWB's Foster Care Program, as well as children in needy orphanages. Providing warmth with the gift of a coat is such a wonderful way to help with a modest donation. It is a privilege to see LWB volunteers, staff, and supporters come together to help children in need. Each plays an important role in giving these children the gift of love while meeting their physical needs.


Ripple Effects of Good Nutrition
by Mari Davidson
LWB's Nutrition Program's goal is to assist orphanages in meeting their children's basic nutritional needs, by providing high quality formula and/or rice cereal. Our ongoing program at the Shangrao Ling SWI serves approximately 20 children, ranging in age from three months to five years. About half of the children have special needs, including cleft lip and palate and heart disease. Our China program manager regularly records the children's heights and weights to track their growth. We have seen increased health, better skin and hair conditions, and fewer infections, and the caregivers have reported much happier children. With quality formula prices continuing to rise, we continue to seek funds to help support our nutrition program. We will gratefully accept your monthly sponsorship of a minimum suggested amount of $20, or your one-time donation in any amount, to help provide the gifts of health, contentment, and a full tummy. Donors will receive quarterly updates with photos.



New Bikes!
On a visit to the Weng'An orphanage last month, thanks to the donations received from many wonderful supporters, LWB's Orphanage Assistance ProgramGuizhou Bicycle Project was able to provide new bicycles for the children in the orphanage... making it easier for them to get to school each day. The children were so excited to get to pick out their own bikes and took great care in making their selections. The complete story and several terrific photos can be found at our blog

Be sure to see all of the blog posts, beginning here, about our staff's China trip, including an update on Yong.


Fortune Cookie Wishes for Kids
A special thank you to Katie Rapp and the Cooper School students for raising over $1,300 to help the students at LWB's Believe in Me Huainan School. The Cooper School students held a Chinese cultural camp; hosted a dinner at a local Chinese restaurant, the Dragon Palace; and held a Fortune Cookie Wishes fundraiser. Take-out boxes were filled with cookies and wishes for family, happiness, and love were shared on the boxes.



Our Heroes: Eliza Li Weiniger
On Thursday, March 28, 2013, Eliza visited and spoke in front of 40 local business owners at a BNI networking meeting.

A Bat Mitzvah marks the time when a girl becomes responsible for the fulfillment of hundreds of commandments. The mitzvah project can be 
something to help others which will encourage the Jewish tradition of chessed, (kindness). Eliza Weinger is using her mitzvah project to raise donations to help the children left behind in China. After being adopted from China as an infant, Eliza has continued to hold the children of China close to her heart. She would love to be able to help the children who have grown up without the love of a family.

Eliza is raising awareness about needs that can be met through LWB's Orphanage Assistance Program that provides supplies to children residing in orphanages throughout China for their safety and comfort and to enrich their lives. Items provided include safe cribs and warm quilts, heating and cooling systems, clean drinking water, diapers, formula, washing machines and dryers, incubators, toys and playground equipment and warm winter coats.
