Dear Portion for Orphans Partners,

7th Annual Hope Run & Walk Follow Up

The Bible in Psalm 68:5 says that God is a “Father to the fatherless…” This weekend we saw Him moving in the hearts of MANY on behalf of the needs of orphans in China.


  • 301 Total Participants (a 54% increase over 196 in 2009)
  • Over 40 AWESOME volunteers!!!
  • $7,060 raised on race day ($2,860 in 2009)
  • 100% will benefit orphans at New Hope Foundation, a medical orphanage in China treating children with surgically correctable deformities that hinder their survival and quality of life. www.hopefosterhome.com
  • Results are available at www.hoperun.org

For a closer look at our recent visits to New Hope Foundation, watch a short video.

And, last but not by any means least. A friend of mine from high school now works as a local news broadcaster … here’s how she is using her voice to speak up for the needs of orphans...

Liu Min Hao's Cleft Lip Surgery

Liu Min Hao has recovered from his recent PFO-funded cleft lip surgery. He currently lives at New Hope Foundation in Beijing and is awaiting adoption.

The cost of this life changing procedure has recently declined to $350 per child due to a new clinic located closer to New Hope Foundation. Here are the pictures of Liu Min Hao…
