Caring for China's Orphans made the switch a few years ago from Annabelle's Wish. Below are most of the blog postings from our first blog. We hope to post monthly on progress made by CfCO as we continue our work in China.
Our old blog can be found at:
Annabelle's Wish will make it's first Medical Mission Trip to China this summer 2010. The team leaves for China July 12 and returns home July 21. The surgeries will take place in Xi'an with the majority of the children coming from the Starfish Foster Home. We've been aiding the orphans of China since 1995 and have made 26 trips taking much needed aid, built bathrooms, painted buildings, purchased large items such as: washers, refrigerators, incubators, paid for surgeries and much more to make the children's lives better. We are a 501(c)3 organization so your donation is tax decuctible. Please make a donation so these precious children of God can have a better quality of life.
We began working with the children of Shizong 7 years ago. There were approximately 30 precious children living in terrible conditions especially the bathroom. They had no place to brush their teeth except an outside faucet on a sidewalk. The shower consisted of a hose pipe dropped out of a ceiling of a building nearly falling down and the non flushing toilets were the worst smelling things I have ever smelled. The urine and feces just sat there with germs growing. We fell in love with the children the first time we saw them and knew we had to do all we could to help them. In November 2008 we were finally given permission by the local officials to remodel the entire bathroom. The children now have flushing toilets, sinks to brush their teeth and warm showers. All of this couldn't have happened without our supporters. A GREAT BIG Thank You to those that donated to make everything possible for these wonderful children.
