Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We seek to save abandoned and vulnerable children and those with life threatening medical conditions in Asia.

We provide family-based foster care, education and medical care in countries where we are able to establish operations; currently we are in China, India, Mongolia, Myanmar, and Nepal.

We have seven child care facilities, 10 regional foster care programs, more than 50 staff members, and work with nearly two dozen foreign and US hospitals to provide services.

Since we began operations in 1997, we have provided more than 2,500 children with a safe, nurturing home and education; provided more than 500 cleft palate surgeries; and, provided more than 150 Congenital Heart Disease surgeries.
