Address:

3600 NW 138th St, Suite 102 Oklahoma City OK 73134 USA

Mission:

To transform the lives of orphaned and impoverished children by providing hope and healing.

Results:

Some of our recent accomplishments include: * LWB opened another healing homes this year, in addition to the two provincial healing homes in Anhui province for medically fragile children. The Loving ARMs (Anal Rectal Malformation) Healing Home opened in September. Our healing homes provide medical care to fragile abandoned babies. * We continue to pursue new opportunities for foster care. These programs served over 300 children in 2014. LWB has local managers on site in every foster care community who check on the progress of the children in their foster homes every month. * LWB held another special education teacher training in June 2015, this year on site at its Believe in Me schools. All Believe In Me teachers and managers, as well as team members from partner organizations, were invited to attend. The on-site training allowed direct evaluation of the children and suggestions for accommodations to support and enhance learning. * We provide educational assistance to orphaned and impoverished children in China. We continued our orphanage school programs in Jinjiang, Huainan, Changzhi, and Shaoguan and two new schools in Gansu. Our Believe in Me schools, located inside social welfare institutions in China, teach math, art, music, Chinese, English, and science through a Montessori based method. In 2015, we continued to include a nutritional component as well, providing a healthy daily snack to all the orphaned children in our schools, and a safe dental program (Lifetime of Smiles). * LWB’s medical program continues to provide surgeries to babies abandoned with conditions such as cleft lip, spinal tumors, anal atresia, congenital heart defects, and more. The majority of our surgeries are performed at Fudan University in Shanghai and Anhui Children’s Hospital in Hefei. Our program for impoverished children provides heart surgeries, and we are expanding services in other locations across China. Additionally, our Cleft Initiative continues to bring educational materials and bottles to families of cleft-affected children throughout China by partnering with maternity hospitals. In the spring of 2015, LWB held a cleft medical exchange, a partnership between western and Chinese surgeons in pursuit of the development of best practices. * Our nutrition program is helping to provide much needed formula, cereal and nutritious snacks to children of all ages in LWB programs. We help provide specialized baby formula to children with issues such as prematurity and milk allergies.

I have experienced first hand the work that Love Without Boundaries is doing in one of their schools in China. The children are thriving and learning. The nutrition of the children has improved greatly and you can tell their quality of life is improving by the joy in their faces. Thanks to LWB for stepping out of the American Dream and sharing with precious children and meeting their needs.

I am a volunteer with Love Without Boundaries in their education program and am very impressed with the services given to the children there. Love Without Boundaries knows and serves each child involved. I also sponsor a child in the medical program and receive detailed monthly reports. With LWB, the child comes first--always.

As a volunteer in Shanghai, I visit and spend a lot of time with the LWB-sponsored children who come to China's top pediatric hospital, where I see firsthand how LWB strives to provide the most compassionate care possible to every single child. I also travel on an annual LWB medical trip, where I photograph children before and after cleft lip and palate surgery. Like all other LWB volunteers, I travel at my own expense. I also donate to this charity's medical fund, and I sponsor a child in foster care. I would not volunteer my time and donate my money to a charity that wasn't absolutely transparent and fiscally responsible. I am so grateful that this charity exists to advocate for orphaned and impoverished children who otherwise would have little hope. Volunteering with LWB has changed my life.

After our first adoption, we became aware of Love Without Boundaries and all the many programs they have started including medical, foster care, education, special programs, nutrition, and new ones appear as needs are seen. We appreciate ALL that Love Without Boundaries Foundation does to help needy orphans in China, as well as their newer program "the Unity Fund" that helps needy children to remain in their families. We volunteer and have been donors over the years and can't say enough about the programs that LWB supports and the awesome group of volunteers who make this a top notch non-profit organization! So many children have been helped and we recommend giving to this organization because Love Without Boundaries makes a real difference!

Love Without Boundaries is a fantastic organization that is led with strong, holistic leadership. Love Without Boundaries is set apart by its leadership team. Amy is a compassionate individual who understands and cultivates empathetic relationships with each person she meets. Her super-power reaches its full potential with her organization. She lives by the creed of her organization, and strives to create a world that is better for each person she interacts with.

I've personally interacted with Amy, and her organization's work and I can say confidently that I trust that the world is a better place because of this organization. It deserves all the recognition it receives. I know that many more people than myself resonate with this organization's infectious energy.

I've volunteered since 2011 with this organization. I watched them grow from just a group of adoptive parents thinking about how they could help one little boy to an world-wide organization of volunteers who have helped so many children in China. They have many programs such as healing homes, foster care programs, Believe in Me school programs, unity initiatives that help poor families get the surgeries for their children so they don't have to abandon them, life-skills programs for older orphans, nutrition, care-give training and more. LWB is not the kind of organization that puts out sad advertisements to get people to donate. LWB does the work, gets the kids help, and report back to the donors how the children are doing. The kids are not just a name or a number, Each child is a story of how people pulled together, sometimes in most difficult of circumstances and how healing and transformation takes place. In the Changzhi Foster Care program, we have had 22 children get adopted and each of them was much more prepared for transition into a forever family because of the love and care they got in a foster family instead of an orphanage. It is all possible not only because of the dedication of our volunteers, it is the strong dedication of our thousands of sponsors who donate and support these children and the programs that help them. For an idea of some ways LWB is making a difference see for yourself. https://www.lovewithoutboundaries.com/impact-report/

I witness daily the compassion, care, understanding and dedication all the LWB volunteers put into their work all over the world. They are able to take on responsibilities such as identifying children in need, creating a plan, execute it in hours and save a life. Not only save a life but take it through medical treatment, healing, and into foster homes with families who care for them in a natural family setting instead of an orphanage. They run educational programs for orphans who would not get to go to school, fund higher education for kids who are so poor their families or the relative they may be living with can't afford. There are so many things LWB does seamlessly and so many lives are touched especially those of us who do the work.
