We wanted to do something big for Chinese New Year, and for the babies. We set our sights high - raising $12,000 in 12 days for the Acute Care Fund. We told story after story, and you guys shared the miracles with your friends.
With just a few hours to go before the fund-raiser would end, at the same time as a matching challenge was going on, suddenly our goal was met. And now, with the money donated through Paypal and through checks, our total is...


I cried when I saw that we had reached our goal. It's breathtaking, really.

Exactly one week ago, a little boy arrived into our care. He has two very severe GI defects, and had to be flown in from his province and rushed to the hospital right away. Benjamin had emergency surgery just a few hours after arriving at the hospital. The surgery went well, and he is now off of the ventilator and off of supplemental oxygen.

Benjamin was born premature, so his health is very compromised. He could be in the hospital for a very long time, and the Acute Care fund is what is making his care possible right now. It's saving his life.

So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Thank you for your generous donations, for your enthusiastic support and for literally saving a little baby boy's life. One day little Benjamin will be running and playing and we'll all be sitting there marvelling at the miracle of his life.
