It is estimated that there are more than 600,000 children in China and among which 99% of them are suffering from different level of physical disabilities. At the same time, these children are struggling with poverty, poor living conditions, hunger and lack of basic services. They are weakened by malnutrition or even die of basic illnesses. Their chances of survival have already been substantially challenged during the early stage of life.
Collaborating with local medical providers such as MedArt and HIS Foundation, LOHA aims to provide corrective surgeries and professional medical care to the children in need and provide them a chance to live a normal life. LOHA also provides funding necessary to alleviate the children of any medical needs including vaccinations, eye care, surgeries and hospitalization as necessary. In some cases, the children are brought to Hong Kong for treatment and surgery by specialist doctors.
As more children are brought to our attention, and increasingly most abandoned children tend to have some form of disability, LOHA will continue to strive to bring necessary medical remedy to ensure these disadvantaged children can live as normal a life as is possible.
