Orphan’s Promise supports an orphanage in Mongolia that currently cares for 22 orphans. These include abandoned and special needs children, and those rescued by government authorities from abusive family situations. Those who don’t have families are cared for until an adoptive family can be found. Efforts are made to reunite those children who do have parents once improvements have been made in the parent’s situation and authorities are convinced the children will be returning to a safe and loving home.
One of these children is a little boy named Ganbayar. He was born with a hole in his heart that prevented him from growing and thriving. His mother is single and cannot afford to provide care or a home for them so they were forced to live with friends and relatives. His prognosis was grim until he received help from a cardiologist at the hospital where he was taken. As it happens, the Director of the orphanage we support works at this same hospital.
When Ganbayar was able to get the surgery he needed, his mother came to the hospital to help with his care. Our Director then arranged for Ganbayar to live at the orphanage until his recuperation was complete and his mother was able to provide a home for him. During this time, his life began to turn around. Although his recuperation was fairly extensive he began to grow and thrive and is now quite an active little boy!
During this time, his mother’s life began to improve also. She started working with a family after moving to the countryside and met a nomad herder who wishes to marry her. He has animals and wants to provide for Ganbayar and his mom. Soon Ganbayar will be able to return to his mom and will be strong enough to sustain the rural, outdoor life of a nomadic child.
It’s always amazing to see how God provides for the “least of these” through the help of his people joining hands and doing what we are called to do. Thanks Orphan’s Promise Family!
