The House of Love has two older couples who regularly visit us. The children call them their “grandparents”.
In China, there are two sets of names for grandparents – one for the mother’s side of the family, Po Po & Gong Gong, and one for the father’s side, Nai Nai & Ye Ye. So, this makes it easy for us to distinguish between the two couples.
This week Nai Nai & Ye Ye received a wonderfully warm welcome from the children.
They will spend some time with the kids, and helping us with some odd jobs around the Units, especially as Ye Ye is a wonderful handyman!

We opened the doors of the Clubfoot Unit 1 year ago.
During that time, we have had the privilege of seeing
the lives of 17 precious children
- whose future was very bleak -
totally turned around.
We have since said goodbye to some of the children
as they completed their treatment and returned to their hometowns.
Some are still with us, and will be leaving soon.
We look forward to this next year when more children arrive,
to be nurtured, loved, cared for,
their clubfoot treated,
and their lives totally changed for the better.
The photos shown are before and afters of Cris
who was the first child to arrive at the Unit.
Thank you for helping us to change lives.
