Living Tree Orphanage

Loving The Children That The World Rejects

China’s orphanages were once filled with healthy baby girls. But as China has relaxed its one-child policy, that situation has changed. Today, 98 percent of China’s orphans are disabled children, and the number of orphans in China grows by between 30,000 and 50,000 children each year. China offers only minimal social security for the disabled, and many parents cannot afford the high costs of long-term health care. These economic realities often push parents to abandon their disabled children to orphanages, where they remain with little hope of adoption. In Yanjiao, China, Living Tree Orphanage provides a home for abandoned children with cerebral palsy. Living Tree’s mission is to provide these children with dignity, happiness, and opportunity through God’s acceptance and love.
