A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
As we celebrate America's Independence Day, we recognize those among us who fight for life and liberty.
Volunteers to China: Willing to Step Up
Our annual Little Red Scarf Summer Camp in Gansu is coming up in August. This weeklong camp gives us a chance to interact more with our post-surgery children and their siblings.
Cindy Chung and her 14-year-old son Shawn have answered the call to help us serve there this year. They have already been volunteering as translators for LRS. Reading about the children inspired the Chungs to meet and serve them in person.
“We cannot forget the people who are enduring hardship and living in poverty," Cindy exclaims. "Every little thing can make a difference in someone's life!”
Shixiang: The Fallen
Shixiang's mother is only 21 years old. She has already given birth to 3 children and has found out that they all had congenital heart disease, one after the other.
When she was just 19, she had already lost one of her children because of the disease. On May 31, 2016, she lost her second child, Shixiang. We grieve with the family and support them so they can save their only surviving daughter from the clutches of CHD.
Xiao Jun: Battling Bone Marrow Cancer
This family from rural Gansu has already suffered from one son having congenital heart disease. Now they are struggling with their youngest son having cancer. Xiao Jun, a little boy in first grade, has already gone through 4 chemotherapy treatments and will also need surgery. His parents have sold everything they own to pay for treatment, but it's still not enough.
Young Musicians Workshop: The Young and the Brave
What happens when a teen's passion for music fuels a desire to help the needy? The Young Musicians Workshop.
For the fourth year in a row, high school student Emily Kam has helped lead this summer camp to raise funds for an impoverished family in Asia. This year the youth sponsored a 1-year-old boy in Gansu who needed heart surgery. Get inspired by these young ones who creatively engage their community to serve and bless others.
