Emmanuel’s Remarkable Story

Emmanuel lives with his mother and extended family in a tiny home in the former refugee community of Nueva Vida. He was born with a congenital deformity in his upper and lower limbs. When we first met Emmanuel on the steps of our dental clinic in 2012, he was just three years old. We learned he had once received a pair of leg braces from a visiting surgeon to the public hospital in Managua. However, when the surgeon left the program at the hospital ended.

ORPHANetwork Medical Director, Dr. Janice Hebbert, has helped this family throughout their journey. She remarks, “it has been a great blessing to be able to continue to help this young boy; to be a witness of God’s love and his power through science.” 

Today, Emmanuel is eight years old and has been through eight surgeries – six on his hands and two on his legs and tons of physical therapy. The leg braces he was recently fitted with are expected to correct the curvature of his legs within two years! We are honored to create new opportunities for life for Emmanuel, his mother and each of the 22,000 children we serve.

The Biggest and Best Party with a Purpose Yet!

On a Friday night in October, as the last party goers left Chicago’s Meadows Club, over 1,200 children in Nueva Vida were guaranteed a hot-nourishing meal and medical attention for an entire year. Over 340 people partied so starving kids could eat, how amazing is that?

Party with a Purpose is definitely not one of those dreaded rubber- chicken dinner fundraisers that most people envision when they hear the word “fundraiser.”  It is a party that TransNational Bankcard CEO and ON board member, John Pitzaferro, says “has become a focal point of my life.”  For the past three years Read More
