China: Orphan's Heart Surgery

For the first time in her three years, Qing Qing is finally sleeping (In her PJs at right). A series of infections over the past six months delayed her critical heart surgery. Once during this wait, her heart just gave out - Quin Quin nearly died. But finally last week, little Quin Quin was strong enough to have the first of the two operations she needs. Since the day she was delivered to the orphanage, her blue colored skin told the caregivers that this little girl was not getting enough oxygen. The lack of oxygen was created by a severe heart condition that made everything difficult for the orphaned baby, even falling asleep.

Candy Craze Helps Street Children in India

Our friends at Candy Craze provided 200 Indian children with blankets to hold off the chill of winter nights. All those kids also had a hot meal the evening they received their blankets. In addition, the purchases of Candy Craze Take-out boxes paid for two mobile medical clinics to impoverished villages so that 150 patients could receive free medical treatment.

2010 Gift Catalog makes it possible for you to help these Indian children.

Ethiopia: Water is Now Flowing at Bright Hope School

For years, the 2100 students at Bright Hope School went all day with no fresh water to drink: Yesterday that all changed. Water came flowing out of the ground as the drilling rig hit drinkable water at 80 meters below the school property.

“The Bright Hope director was crying in joy when she saw water coming out from the ground”, said Tsegay Fesseha, Children’s Hope-Ethiopia Director.

Enjoying this much anticipated moment, were the members of a work detail from Harvest Church of Billings Montana. The Harvest team is at Bright Hope this week reconstructing the front gate wall that leads into the school grounds. Bright Hope community volunteers are assisting with this tough manual labor needed in order to complete the job by the end of the week.

The well is the first project of the Bright Hope School Garden Project. With water soon to be available, the chicken hatchery buildings and the vegetable garden cultivation can begin.
This self sustaining mini-farm will provide nutritious meals of protein and vegetables for the students who all come from impoverished homes.
