St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 04, 2012
Around 200 people gathered on Friday, to tour the newest section of Alenah’s Home in Beijing. The home, named after Alenah Rogers, a 23-month-old girl adopted from China who was killed in a tragic 2003 flood on a Kansas Highway, takes in children from Chinese orphanages that need medical care only available in Beijing. The expansion of the Children’s Hope International medical care home will provide room for additional orphans from China to have a place to heal.
This expanded area of Alenah’s Home will provide the space needed to care for over 30 orphaned children. By rehabbing an identical house next door and merging the two court yards, the now complete Alenah’s Home has additional bedrooms, play area, and therapy room. The new extension also has boarding rooms for the care givers as well as bedrooms for short-term volunteers and visiting medical professionals.
The children recovering from surgery and their care givers moved into the first section of Alenah’s Home in June 2011. Children’s Hope orchestrated 300 surgeries for Chinese children in 2011, over 5000 operations in China since 2001.
Children’s Hope International provides hope for international orphans and children living in poverty through education, sustainable nutrition, safe drinking water, and medical care; impacting the lives of thousands in China, Ethiopia, Colombia, Russia, Vietnam and India. http://www.HelpAnOrphan.org
