Adopt a Patient and Save a Child’s Life
Your contribution of only $45 provides:
A two-night hospital stay for a patient in Lao Friends Hospital for Children, including 24-hour medical staffing, antibiotics, meals, fluids and other life-saving medications.
Meet our very first inpatient, a 9-year-old Hmong girl named Yong Wa. One of 21 children, she came to the hospital from a small village in Chompet District, just across the Mekong River from Luang Prabang town. Her father brought her in with complaints of a high fever and dehydration. She was diagnosed with severe typhoid by LFHC’s staff. During her five-night stay, she received fluids for dehydration, IV antibiotics, guidance on improved personal hygiene practices, and compassionate care from the Lao nursing team. Inpatients commonly travel great distances to receive the free, compassionate medical care provided by LFHC.
Your support to adopt a patient delivers full medical care and health education to many children, just like Yong Wa.
