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.
