The Taiwan His Hands Christian Home orphanage was established in 2007 and is dedicated to the placement of infants and young children from 0 – 2 years old from crisis. The babies are rescued from troubled environments, to include family misfortune, abandonment, abuse, negligence, parental imprisonment, etc. These babies can easily suffer permanent physical and mental development issues. The orphanage believe that a “home” is the most suitable environment for their recovery and growth. Therefore, the orphanage is committed to providing a “family-style” care center, helping babies to rebuild a sense of security and health, and growing up in an environment of hope and grace.
There are significant expenses to raising up to 14 babies. His Hands Orphanage Charity Store provides critical financial support to the orphanage where 90% of all profits from the store goes toward the care of the babies. The remaining 10% is used for operating expenses.
The cover music for the video is 我想有個家 by 潘美辰. The title translates to “I want to have a home” and goes on to say “who doesn’t need a home.” This song is an endearment of the babies of 希恩之家 / Taiwan His Hands Christian Home who need a home. Luckily for them, they have found one surrounded by so many caring people.
You can sing along in the following video. This is a classic song in Taiwan, one that brings tears to many people who have experienced hardship while growing up and the only thing that gave them hope was having a “Home.” Many people can relate to this as they have left their homes…left their mothers and fathers…left their sons and daughters and their spouses. We all want a home…need a home.
