Enjoy the website and the pics of the children as well as their stories. My own beautiful daughter (from Wuhan, Hubei) is now 17.

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

I've viewed the results of the heart surgeries in the pictures.

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

I would give it lots more donors as well as a foundation to secure its future.

I adore the work LWB does in China - from medical surgeries to foster care to education to their Unity Fund. They are the first foundation I turn to when I am looking to donate because I always know the money is going directly to the children through their strong programs on the ground in China and because i get updated with colorful reports on the children and programs we have donated to. Top notch foundation!

We have sponsored children in LWB's medical, healing homes and foster care programs and are always so pleased to see that LWB utilizes our donation to directly help the children. This organization is a world-wide network of volunteers who desire to help orphans in China and donate all of their time and work. LWB's communication with sponsors is frequent and includes photos of the children that clearly show their progress, be it from surgical intervention or the loving arms of a foster family. Recommend highly!

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

knowing that my donation made a difference in the life of an orphan in China thorough cleft lip and palate surgery and providing a foster family to develop and grow in a family environment instead of an orphanage.

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

keep it just as it is, working incredibly well to meet their mission statement.

I sponsor a little boy in a healing home. The monthly updates I get are OUTSTANDING. There are so many great photos and such great information about this little boy. I love seeing how much he grows each month and what new things he can do. I love seeing how his personality is developing. I have sponsored children in other programs and there reports and updates are lacking so much. LWB just does a great job overall. Love this charity and all they do to help the Orphans in China.

LWB took in my very sick little boy. They helped him get healthy enough for surgery. It took a long time because he was very ill but they never gave up. He received his cleft lip repair surgery in China and LWB took care of him until he was healed. They then placed him in a loving foster home. There he was loved and cared for until I could bring him home. After this I started donating to this amazing program so other children could get the same love and care my son received. LWB saved my sons life I will forever be thankful.

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

None their wonderful.

This organization is amazing! So professionally operated, yet with such a caring heart that shines through in their regular communications to donors such as myself. The difference they make in the lives of these precious children cannot be overestimated. I love how they work closely with the Chinese authorities and local people - and everyone should consider supporting their Unity Fund!!!

This organization does wonders for special needs orphans in China. As a donor to their foster care program, I get monthly reports for my sponsor child. I love to read about the antics of the little guy I sponsor and see him grow in the monthly pictures! They have a great group of volunteers that do a huge amount of the work, so your money goes a long way.

I have been very impressed with LWB. As a donor, I want to be sure that my donation is being spent intelligently. I have read that LWB spends less than 10% on overhead and fundraising. This is astoundingly low. I also read their blog and facebook posts, and it's clear that the organization is really passionate about their cause.

I found this organisaztion through friends. For quite a while I have been reading a the news letters and the stories on facebook but not yet contributing more than spreading the word. However some time ago I read about a young lady from an orphange who manage to pass an univesity test but could not afford the tution fee. We have for some years lived in China and our children is getting a great education. Education is so important and for many children and youth here in China it is their only way to a bettter life. But without many there is no way. So we gave a litlle and talked a lot and spread the word to friends. The our children decided to give their allowance and slowly the tution fee of 1500 dollar was raised. The day when I got the meassage that the girl could sign up for her courses I was so happy. I am so grateful for the work Love without boundaries is doing. I am proud to be able to be a part of a organization that helps children and young people to reach their potential and dreams!

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

helping this young lady to be able to go to the university.

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

make more people discovered this organization and that will hopefully make more children in China found their forever families and/or get a better life.

Love without boundaries does amazing working with the least priveleged children in china. We are adopting a little 2 year old special needs boy that love without boundaries sponsored his care and got him into an incredible foster home. Their work allowed our little guy's cleft lip and palate to be fixed and they are ensuring he is cared for until we can travel to china. Their appeals to their supporters has certainly raised awareness of the splight of special needs and has given life to hundreds of children. The unity fund which helps families who cannot afford healthcare ( these families consider giving their children away toget them medical treatment) is one of the most amazing projects. They allow families to stay together.

They truly are making a difference in the lives of so many...one child at a time.

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

My son who they are coordinating care for until the adoption is final

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

Give them unlimited funds to help many more kids. I wouldnt change a thig...their model works!

We (my husband, I, my church) have been donors to LWB over the past several years and with many programs (medical, educational). LWB has changed the lives of so many through their programs. They are quick to respond to a need. Everyone I have dealt with at LWB has always been accessible and lives out their motto "Every child counts." They are good stewards of funds. You are assured that what you intend for your money to do, they will put it to that use with minimal overhead. They are the model of how charitable organizations should operate. I love, love, love, Love Without Boundaries!

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

volunteering my time; through child sponsorship reports, etc.

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

I wouldn't change this organization. You don't fix what ain't broken!
