LIGHT is a registered non-government non-profit entity in Shenyang. Most of the funding for our work comes from donors. Your donations change lives! We not only accept money and medical supplies, but also slightly used clothing, linens, and personal hygiene items for orphans and nursing home residents. Please contact us before donating medical supplies.
For those living in China: you may give through your LIGHT contact person or by visiting our office. Of course, you can also give electronically through PayPal or our partners introduced below.
For our friends outside of China:
Gifts can be sent through the PayPal link on this website, which will incur a 2.3% +$0.90 administrative fee, but the donations are not eligible for tax-free status in the USA and Canada. Therefore, LIGHT does not issue any official receipt for PayPal donations. If you give via PayPal, you may send a “gift” (NOT a “donation”) to carlndebk[at]gmail[dot]com
For tax-deductible donations, checks can be mailed to our partner 501(c)(3) organizations in the United States and Canada:

Current Initiatives in Need of Funds
Family Practice Training Program: donations help pay local staff and resident salaries. It has been a major challenge to keep up with market rate salaries, making it difficult to maintain and hire staff and residents.
Orphanages: LIGHT provides milk, fluoride, multivitamins, medications, medical equipment, staffing, special feedings, skilled nursing care, and diagnostic tests for orphans.
Children’s surgeries: donations enable LIGHT to fund diagnostic tests, simple surgeries, hospitalizations, and often life-saving interventions for orphans and foster children. Orphan Adoption Preparation Home Funds help expat and Chinese families with the extra medical and care costs associated with fostering the medically-neediest orphans while waiting for forever-families.
Countryside clinics: Funds allotted for rural areas in our province purchase medicines and medical supplies for our work, and enable us to travel to the countryside.
HIV Clinic: Donations help fund weekly trips to a nearby location and medicine to care for those afflicted with this disease.
Disaster Relief: After the SiChuan earthquake and subsequent tremblers in the SW, we have sent emergency and follow-up medical teams. Donations will help us continue to respond within days of future emergencies.
Hospice Care: Donations are needed to fund a nurse to oversee this program and train volunteer caregivers, and to supply medicine and nutrition for those who can’t afford basic necessities in their final days.
Thank you for considering a financial investment in our work!
