Chinese Orphans Healing with Sisters Loving Care

As an answer to a cry in their hearts to help orphans in their community, four biological sisters turned their two story town home into a care facility for medically fragile babies. The orphaned children are delivered to the sisters’ special care by eight orphanages within the county and districts of Pingdingshan in Henan province.

In 2011, the 4-Sisters care home helped more than 70 orphans with serious diseases, 22 of them had surgeries. The children are returned to their Chinese orphanages once fully recovered, but until that time, the sisters give them four times the love and attention.  

Contributions to Children’s Hope, which are directed toward the 4-Sisters care home, are used for the home’s rent and the children’s medical bills.

A New Life Stitched in Hope

Ramalakshmi’s dignity had been stolen from her years ago. It was the family trade. It was expected of her to provide for the family. She was trapped.

But Ramalakshmi found hope in a decision to follow Jesus.
Soon the 24-year-old Indian woman turned away from the life-style forced on her. This of course brought-on severe chastisement from her parents and relatives since she was no longer providing income. They kicked her out of the house. She no longer had value in their eyes.

With no way of making a living for herself, Ramalakshmi asked for guidance from Paparao Yeluchuri, Children’s Hope partner in India.  He suggested that she enroll in the free nine month sewing course he provides, so that she could be trained in an honorable, marketable skill. She took his advice and soon learned dozens of stitches and how to skillfully use a sewing machine to make women’s clothing and baby dresses.

With this newly developed ability, Ramalakshmi was ready to set up a business in her village. But with no available sewing machines through Paparao’s ministry, and no money of her own to purchase one, she couldn’t move onto her new life. Not until this week.

Because of a Children’s Hope donor, Paparao was able to deliver to Ramalakshmi a brand new foot powered sewing machine.  All the neighbors gathered around as she started sewing.

“She can now confidently stand on her own,” Paparao proudly reports.

Ramalakshmi now has hope for a future that is not shrouded in shame. The training and sewing machine are life giving gifts.

You can give this same gift to a woman in India.

Warming Chinese Orphans

Some of the 87 children at Red Ribbon Homestead orphanage
who received new reversible winter coats.
It doesn’t matter that it’s below freezing today outside the Red Ribbon Homestead; all 87 children living at the orphanage have brand new winter coats thanks to you. Partners in Hope for China monthly donations are giving comfort exclusively to orphans at the Red Ribbon Homestead in southern Henan Province. This is an orphanage for elementary school age children whose parents died of AIDS.

This autumn, before temperatures dropped, 42 children moved to another orphanage for middle school and high school age orphans, while 42 new children replaced them at Red Ribbon Homestead. Most of these new orphans didn’t have much clothing and definitely didn’t own a coat.

So using Partners in Hope funding, Children’s Hope-China purchased and delivered 87 coats to all the children of Red Ribbon Homestead. The newer children also received new socks and underwear along with their new coat.

The Children’s Hope Henan staff reports, “The children are all happy to receive the gifts, they asked us to say thanks to the friends from US who helped them.”
