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

Reviews for Love Without Boundaries Foundation
Love without Boundaries aids orphaned children in China by providing medical assistance, both through surgeries and their four amazing specialized healing homes in China, foster care, education and orphanage assistance. What makes LWB unique is they only have Chinese people on the ground doing the work and all but three of their staff are volunteers meaning that virtually every dollar we give is used to help the children in their care. LWB is a great non-profit in every sense of the word!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
In 2004 LWB did a cleft medical mission to China and repaired the lips of twin girls that had been orphaned the prior year. Six months later we adopted the twins and upon finding out that LWB had been responsible for their marvelous repair (a plastic surgeon that specializes in cleft repairs at Miami Chjildren's Hospital claims they were two of the best repairs he had ever seen) my wife and I volunteered to work with LWB and in 2006 I was asked to serve on the Board. This organization has a total heart for China's orphans. LWB uses over 90% of the funds they collect to fund medical, education, healing homes, foster care and nutrition programs. There are no fat cats with fat salaries - just great people giving in some cases 40 hours or more to help these kids with no remuneration. If you are looking to find a charity that truly does what it says - this is the one.
