My favorite thing about this program is that they not only meet the physical need of surgery for the children, but they meet their spiritual needs as well. When the mothers and children come into the United States they stay with host families and are supported by host churches who show them where to find hope. Many of them go home healed in more ways than one. From what I understand, the doctors and hospitals involved volunteer their time. The money raised is for screening and initial tests in the child's home country and their transportation to get here. There are currently over 200 children on a waiting list who will die without a surgery that cannot be performed in their own country.
This film does a great job of highlighting the great need that is out there and the difference that we can make.

I was given a complimentary copy of this DVD by Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
