Pediatric therapy and rehabilitation center
LIGHT is now involved in training therapy assistants and social workers. One of our team members has also obtained a certificate in counseling, and continues to work and train with other area counselors. H’IMAGE Doctor International Clinic serves as our central platform for holistic care for people in the community.
The LIGHT orphanage work began in 2003. We hired a Chinese nurse to weigh and measure children at the government-run orphanage in our city and to help with the feeding of the babies there. This nurse proved to be a helpful bridge between our medical team and the orphanage workers and leadership. Over time, the role of the government in supporting medical needs of children has changed drastically, and our involvement has adapted as we partner with the leaders to serve the children together.
Foster Care and Adoption Support
LIGHT works to find temporary homes to nurture orphans through caring foster parents in preparation for forever families. We also have begun work to motivate groups of Chinese friends to become much more involved in fostering.
