Summary

This project will underwrite the cost of continuing operations for a Special Care Nursery Room for medically-fragile infants at the HTS China Care Home in Beijing.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Each nursery will care for medically-fragile infants sent to Beijing from orphanages across China; children with pressing medical needs will be treated so they can thrive and function in normal life to the fullest extent possible. In each nursery room, about 25 children will be nursed through life-threatening surgeries. Support is needed for salaries for trained special caregivers, nursing staff, medical, and other supplies.

How will this project solve this problem?

The facility will offer round-the-clock care (on average 2:1 child-to-caregiver ratio) in a nurturing environment until the child is strong enough to be placed in longer-term special post op care program or to return to her home province.

Potential Long Term Impact

Under the care of their nannies and nurses medically-fragile orphaned children will be loved and nurtured back to health. When the children are well, they will be eligible for adoption or permanent foster care.
