Frequently asked questions


Eagles Wings is a project run by Chinese Orphans Assistance Team Inc. (COAT) in conjunction with an orphanage in the Henan Province in China.  The project incorporates family group foster homes, education and vocational training programs for abandoned and disabled children.


You can help by praying, by giving, by advocating.  Information regarding making tax deductible donations or regular sponsorship is found on our sponsorship and donations pages.  If you want to see how the children in our care are going, please follow us on social media (facebook, twitter, instagram) 


Some of our children are available for adoption.  COAT and Eagles Wings have NO role in the adoption process other than preparing paperwork as requrested by the orphanage.  Once a child is matched with an adoptive family we prepare the child for joining their new family.  Families interested in adoption should contact the relevant adoption agencies in their local area.  Most adoptions for our children are completed through CCAI (Chinese Children Adoption International).  Adoption may not be available in all countries. A few children are in the pipeline for adoption as I write this, but I have been told that only local adoptions will be done from this orphanage in the future.


We are located in far North Henan Province, central China.  


This is not at all a tourist area: in a population of roughly 3.5 million people, there area only a handful of foreigners.  Very few people speak English, but the people are very friendly.


The economy here is primarily agricultural and many people live in their traditional villages.  While the city seems big by western standards, it is small for a Chinese city and fairly poor.


This is REAL China ... Henan has a huge population, most of which are peasants. It has much poverty, much pollution, much corruption, millions of Christians and much persecution. God must call you, or you will not cope.
