The special needs orphanage supported by Global Partners in Life was started in 1996 by a woman who goes by the anglicized name of Anne. Anne was an engineer with a wonderful career. While volunteering at a municipal orphanage, she had a vision of a baby with wings flying to her and asking her to take care of it and realized she could provide more individualized care in her own home for those orphans with special needs.
Anne left her stable job, and soon began to garner respect and recognition for her growing, home-based orphanage. Hospitals started calling her directly when a child had been abandoned. Other orphanages also heard of Anne’s experience providing care for orphans with severe medical conditions, and began to send children to her.
The reality is, without Anne’s willingness to open an orphanage in her 3-bedroom home, many of those she received would not have survived outside of her care. The one-child policy in China prompts the abandonment of many children with special needs; even for those who desire to keep their child, the required medical care is out of their financial reach, so many believe that by abandoning their child, they are actually giving him or her the best fighting chance.
With the exchange rate, your investment of $1 USD will provide more than 6 Chinese RMB for the children we support.
