Success Stories

New Day Foster Home’s formula project began because of one little boy. Read his story below.


Jacob came to New Day Foster Home for heart surgery to correct his congenital heart defect. However, when he arrived from the orphanage, he was suffering from malnutrition due to the simple fact that his orphanage could not afford formula. Instead they were feeding their babies cow’ s milk.

Malnutrition made Jacob very susceptible to sickness, and he caught pneumonia and an infection which spread to his already-weakened heart, causing it to enlarge and beat irregularly. Shortly after his arrival at New Day Foster Home, we admitted him into ICU at a Beijing hospital, where he stayed until he recovered from pneumonia and began treatments to bring his enlarged heart back down to its normal size.

Jacob’ s story ends happily, but we know that proper nutrition in this case would have saved Jacob a fight for his life. Jacob’ s story is what started the New Day Formula Project.
