What You Can Do
There are many different ways that you can help An Orphan's WIsh improve the lives and the prospects for China's orphaned children at the House of Love.
Check out our Current Supply List. There are some items that we aren’t able to purchase locally that make the care of our children possible. Clothes made in the US and Europe are much higher quality and tend to last through many more washings than locally made clothing. Used braces for our Clubfoot and CP children also make such a difference in helping us care for our kids! You may donate funds to be used for the purchase of necessary supplies, or send your donation directly, shipped to either our US address, or to the Unit in China. Whenever possible, we try to send these items to China with volunteers who are traveling to save on shipping costs.
We have compiled some general information about hosting an event that benefits the children at An Orphan’s Wish. The events mentioned here are a jumping off point. We hope you will let your imagination soar and will create an event that best meets the needs of the community where it will take place. Once you decide which event best meets your needs, we will be there to support you with: digital files, event literature, videos and more. All proceeds raised through fundraising events are donated to our general fund so that all of our children benefit from your love!

Join Our Volunteer Team
An Orphan's Wish is always excited to have new volunteers join our team! To be considered as a potential volunteer, please complete this form in it's entirety.Please understand that, in an effort to put you in contact with other volunteers on our team, your information will be shared with other AOW volunteers, unless you explicitly request.
It is our sincerest hope at An Orphan’s Wish that all of the children in our care would ultimately join forever families through adoption. Because all adoptions in China are handled by China through the governmental agency, the China Center for Adoption Affairs (CCAA), we are not able to facilitate adoptions in any way.
Occasionally, some of the children in our care become available for adoption. Please visit our Waiting for a Family page to learn more about these children.
