ASIA/CHINA - Abandoned babies receive tender loving care from Catholic Sisters

Monday, 17 May 2004

NingJin (Fides Service) - Sometimes when a baby is born with a disability parents cannot face the trauma and the child is left to be cared for by the hospital or an orphanage. There are many Catholic homes and orphanages for abandoned children in China where the little ones are welcomed and cared for by women religious Sisters. Just recently in the village of NingJin in Hebei province a child born with a serious heart condition and rejected by the parents was taken by the Catholic Sisters at Dawn House who provided the necessary medical treatment and are now giving him tender loving care to help him grow.
