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.

Reviews for Love Without Boundaries Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

Love Without Boundaries has done immeasurable work to help orphaned children in China. We adopted our daughter in 2006 and were so distressed to see the conditions in which the children had to live in her orphanage. No toys, very little attention, etc. Just monts later, LWB went in and started a preschool and a foster care program. In addition, a playground was added for the children. This is just one area they made a huge difference, they have done the same at numerous orphanages in China.

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

seeing the results with the children in the school

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

give them more money if I could.

Love Without Boundaries started as the dream of one adoptive mother, who I have had the pleasure of knowing for over 10 years. We started our journeys to adopt childen in China at the same time and I've watched her dream grow with the addition of hundreds of other adoptive parents and people who care about orphans and poor children. LWB uses every cent possible to change the lives of children in China through their nutritional programs, medical care and educational facitilies. With an administrative overhead of less than 10%, my family and friends are assured that our donations are making a difference in the world.
We love Love Without Boundaries!

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

seeing the faces of the children who are healed through heart surgeries, have had their cleft lips repaired, have grown and gained weight due to the nutrition programs in the orphages that LWB supports.

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

not change a thing - you guys are doing fabulously!!

This is a wonderful chairty that helps orphaned and ill children who desperately need medical attention. Through LWB, these children are provided with the medical attention no matter how much and how specialized the care needed is. They never cease to stop, thankfully!!! They give these children a chance for a very healthy and happy life!! Without LWB, these children most of which would die. Some would survive with little ability to thrieve and be adopted. I firmly believe in Love Without Boundaries and have donated several thousands of dollars to these children, proudly, because they are so deserving. Each chlid is in my heart. Thank you.

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

seeing many children made healthy again and adopted!!! They saved these children !!!

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

find more people to donate through all necessary avenues!

I am a mother of two little girls adopted from China. I feel very blessed and wanted to help other orphans in China. I had heard of Love Without Boundaries and was familiar with their work in China. Then I had the opportunity to hear Amy Eldridge, founder, speak about her organization. I was hooked. I made my first donation that night. I began receiving reports and keeping up to date with all Love Without Boundaries does. They really help children in need. My primary experience has been with Heartbridge. This is one of their healing homes that brings in medically fragile orphans and takes care of them before, during and after their surgery. You can see the results in their pictures and reports. These children receive the love and care necessary to heal. I wish I was more eloquent. I just want everyone to know that this organization is amazing. Please visit their website and check them out. Please donate to this awesome charity.

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

I receive monthly updates on children at Heartbridge. I can see these children getting the care they need and see their lives transformed in their pictures and reports.

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

None.

I can't sing the praises of LWB loudly enough! I have an adopted daughter from China and my heart hurts for the orphans left behind, especially those with special medical needs. Love Without Boundaries seems to work miracles at times with the orphans under their care. I have sponsored several children in their Heartbridge Healing Home and have watched their progress with amazement. These babies have a chance for a real life and the love a family because of the extraordinary work done by the volunteers at LWB and their employees in China. They do so much with the donations. I'm impressed with their stewardship of their funds and their desire to maximize the benefits for the children they are helping.

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

I have met other families with adopted children that benfitted form LWB's help in China.

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

No changes! These are great people.

Love Without Boundaries is truly the most authentic organization I know of!
Started by an every day mom moved by what she saw in an orphanage while she was adopting her child from China. She came home, couldn't shake off what she had seen, prayed, and miracles happened and continue to happen. Why? Because she put love into actual action. Orphans have the very heart of God and He backs people who fight for orphans. God puts all Heaven behind saving the lives of these hero children. The bottom line question to ask yourself is this; "Is there anything sadder in life than a sick child alone in the world?"
Since there is not. Love Without Boundaries works for change in this world!
They are simply the BEST! They make a difference by saving one child at a time!

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

All of my own four BEAUTIFUL children are adopted. I HAPPILY contribute to help children who were one helpless, like my own children once were.

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

NONE! They are PERFECT!
