LAMON FAMILY PROGRAM
LEAP offers hope to children who have no options for care in their home countries.
The Lamon Family Program (formerly the Landmark Program), in partnership with Medical City Children’s Hospital in Dallas, makes it possible for children with the most complex surgical needs, who live in underserved areas of the world, to travel to the United States to receive high quality medical and surgical care.
LEAP saves lives.
Many of the children served by LEAP Global Missions have such severe craniofacial abnormalities that they have been abandoned as infants or sent to palliative care facilities. We see it as our sacred duty to change the course of their lives for the better. We often take care of or greatly reduce their travel and surgical costs, and we also coordinate host families who will offer these children a loving and safe environment while they heal.
LEAP provides long-term care to those brought to the United States for treatment.
The children served by the Lamon Family Program often require multiple surgeries that are too complicated to perform in their own countries. In many cases, they are allowed to stay in the United States for an extended period of time. And often, we are able to help orphaned patients through an adoption process while they are in the U.S. In these cases, we feel that God brought us into their lives so that we could ultimately unite them with their forever families.
