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.

LWB saved my daughter's life 6 years ago and they continue to do life saving, life changing work throughout China. They are committed to helping as many children as possible in China. They are primarily staffed by volunteers so their overhead costs are low. It's an amazing charity!

I first became acquainted with Love WIthout Boundaries when I discovered they funded much needed heart surgery for my daughter when she was an infant living in an orphanage in China. This organization's commitment to helping children in China, both those with families and without, is truly impressive. I am proud to now work as a volunteer with them. There are very few paid staff in the organization, so that more of the donation money can help the children it is intended for. I don't have words for how grateful I am that they helped save my daughter's life.

I have seen first hand the difference that LWB is making in the lives of many children, and I can't say enough good things about them. Their work is life giving, life changing and life saving. Every child counts!

I have been a volunteer for Love Without Boundaries for several years, and still every day I am touched by the passion and caring that each volunteer demonstrates for every single child that comes into one of our programs.

The work Love Without Boundaries is doing is inspirational. The lives they touch priceless and uncountable. From the children in their programs to the foster parents, from the doctors on cleft exchanges to the parents who adopt a child that otherwise may have died from a complicated heart defect they are reaching out with compassion and often what appears to be emotions raw from the loses.

They have several educational programs that are changing children's lives. I know of at least two orphans in recent weeks who passed college/university entrance exams because of the work LWB does. They help children in preschool all the way through college. Many of these children would not have had educational opportunities without them because of being orphaned or because of poverty. They provide funding for orphans and rural children, and they provide training for teachers.

The people of this organization are what make it so great. They are changing the world one child at a time.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I see the results every time I get a newsletter or a progress report. I see the results every day when I visit their website and blog to get my daily dose of LWB.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't know that there is anything I would change. I wish more children could be a part of their programs.

I have been volunteering for Love Without Boundaries for 5 years. The oversight, the dedication volunteer feels to the children and the fact that almost all of each donation goes to the children makes this a truly great charity. I am proud of being associated with them. My younger daughter was served by medical, foster care, and education and it made such a difference in her health and her adjustment.

I am a foster care and education coordinator for Anhui Province. I track monthly developmental progress of the children and make sure they are on target. If they aren't, I make suggestions to help them make progress. I also track quarterly education reports to ensure that the school-aged children in my foster care program are making strides in their intellectual development. It is a privilege to work for the children and to watch them grow (and then be adopted!).

I began sponsoring a child through Love Without Boundaries. We received updates of the little girl in education so we could see her development. When an opportunity opened to volunteer for Love Without Boundaries, I jumped at it. Love Without Boundaries provides medical care, education, and foster care for children in child, but each team works with the others to ensure the whole child's needs are considered. When many of the children in the foster care program which I coordinate became preschool aged, Love Without Boundaries found a way to send them to school. Love Without Boundaries provides the head start for children in China that I wish my own daughter had in her early years.

Finding a solution to the issue of children in need of schooling. Many children were reaching preschool age and Love Without Boundaries found a way to send the children to school.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would make no changes. This organization is top notch from both a sponsor's perspective and a volunteer's perspective.

By far the most rewarding volunteer experience of my university career so far. Such a tight-knit group of wonderful volunteers whose love and compassion for the kids shines through in everything they do. I love seeing updates of children who have been helped through our programs.

After working with Love Without Boundaries for over 2 years now I must say that I have been very impressed with the level of dedication, love, care and passion it takes to run an organization of this size and impact. Everyone involved from the Board to the Director to the China Staff and to the Volunteer Base has a strong level of commitment to these deserving children. There is a common goal that each person shares and it is to better the lives of every child that LWB comes into contact with, whether the child is a part of the program or not. Love Without Boundaries welcomes new ideas from it's support community and embraces change very easily. It has and will continue to be a pleasure and inspiration to volunteer with LWB. They are honest, ethical and passionate.

I first learned about this organization from the adoption community. Then years later I adopted a child who happened to be sponsored and provided for by LWB. Our daughter was so well taken care of compared to other children adopted and the same time, that weren't in a nutrition program and foster home, that I was thoroughly convinced the work of LWB was crucially to the children's needs. I have now volunteered for over 5 years, and seen that they advocate for every child's need, and funds go directly to the children. I am so impressed with this volunteer model, I've seen nothing like it in any other nonprofit!

This organization continues to amaze me. I became a volunteer after LWB was able to help me get a donation of coats to my daughter's orphanage. I could not walk away from them after I learned more and I continue to be blown away by the love and dedication of this group. With a very low overhead due to mostly volunteers, LWB is making a massive difference, often a life-saving difference, in orphans and impoverished children of China, one child at a time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

nothing!

We have adopted two children from China and one of them was assisted by LWB. They helped provide funding for her foster care, education and medical needs. I cannot imagine what her life would have been like without the help of LWB.
