Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Health, Health Support, Human Services, International, International Relief, Youth Development

Mission: To transform the lives of orphaned and impoverished children.

Results: Some of our recent accomplishments include: * 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.

I have experienced first hand the work that Love Without Boundaries is doing in one of their schools in China. The children are thriving and learning. The nutrition of the children has improved greatly and you can tell their quality of life is improving by the joy in their faces. Thanks to LWB for stepping out of the American Dream and sharing with precious children and meeting their needs.

I first heard of Love Without Boundaries in 2010 through a friend. We had donated to help a child who had the same complex medical history as our daughter did. This child needed life saving surgery and medical treatment and had LWB not intervened, I believe she would likely have not survived. Two years later, we became the proud parents of that same child through adoption. I now serve as a volunteer with LWB. Seeing the "behind the scenes" work LWB does through my role as a volunteer has only made me respect LWB even more than I already had! They are an organization that truly lives up to their name, and I stand with them in the fight to help orphaned and impoverished children around our globe!

Love Without Boundaries is an amazing organization that helps orphaned & impoverished children in China, Uganda, Cambodia, and India. Their motto is "Every Child Counts", and I truly believe that this the heart of the organization. LWB considers each child in their programs as an individual - ensuring that they receive the education, nutritional, and/or medical care that they specifically need. Our family has seen the lives of many children truly transformed by LWB! This agency is extremely ethical and uses donor funds exactly as promised, while also working hard to provide culturally-appropriate care. I recommend LWB very highly!

I first became aware of the tremendous work of Love Without Boundaries (LWB) in 2012 when we adopted three children from China, who each had somehow benefited from the organizations' efforts. The organization is amazing and the love and passion all of the staff and volunteers have for caring for children is unbelievable. They do amazing work in many countries, providing medical, educational and nutritional care to those who would no doubt not survive if it weren't for LWB. I will forever be indebted to them for what they did for my children before they were in my family, and I am honored to volunteer my time to contribute to helping other children.

I currently volunteer here and have seen first hand how much love and work are provided for these children. Each child is cared for individually and advocated for to the furthest extent possible. All the work is done from the genuine care and concern from everyone's hearts and it is evident in the quality of programs and care provided for the children. LWB not only works with orphans but are dedicated to helping prevent orphans through their Unity Initiative and also for children left behind from working parents. It speaks volumes to the depths of the love from this organization for the children.

I have volunteered for LWB for over 10 years. One of the reasons I love supporting LWB is its strong core of volunteers which means funds donated go to help the kids, not to administrative salaries. Volunteers make this happen and donors know their money goes to what their hearts feel is important! I continue to be amazed at cost effective solutions to big problems as LWB helps in the many countries it serves.

I started out as a donor/sponsor with Love Without Boundaries because I was impressed with their work with babies and children in China who were in need of medical help. I have since become a volunteer with the organization as a coordinator for one of their many education programs. I am consistently impressed with the breadth of Love Without Boundaries' many programs in various countries that address so many needs--medical, education, nutrition, foster care, water, family preservation--and they do it in a way that truly meets those needs in a culturally respectful and sustainable way.

I have two wonderful grand daughters because of Love Without Boundaries. One in particular benefited from their cleft lip program and foster care. I don't even want to consider what their lives would have been like without this program. And it is for that reason I donate towards the education of a child in China. LWB also at times makes special requests. A recent one was for a young girl in Africa who needed surgery outside her own country. It is nice to know that my contribution can help a child in need and to get an update on that child

I have been a volunteer with Love Without Boundaries for 8 years now. Because the organization has only a few paid staff, the focus is always on the children. The majority of each dollar goes directly to services such as foster care, education and medical care. The unity initiative is reducing child abandonment through the provision of medical care that birth families cannot afford. One of my children was served by education, foster care, and medical care and she was healthy and easily adjusted to life in our family. The children thrive with the love and attention they receive from this organization.

I have been a donor for many years and a current volunteer, and I am consistently blown aware by this nonprofit. They truly change the lives of children who are in what would otherwise be impossible circumstances and do so with the highest level of integrity that I have ever witnessed. I have been involved in numerous nonprofits for well over a decade as an employee, volunteer, and/or donor and Love Without Boundaries exceeds them all with regard to their honesty, passion, and service.

LWB is a wonderful nonprofit that works hard to serve children in China, Cambodia, India, and Uganda. Through their efforts, families are kept together, children receive medical care and education they otherwise wouldn't, and children without families are able to live in loving foster homes in their own countries before their adoption. The work LWB does is sustainable, using in-country staff whenever possible, and almost all of their American staff are unpaid volunteers. LWB sets an example for how nonprofits should operate.

Love Without Boundaries is THE best. Their mission of "Every Child Counts" matches my heart so directly ... medical care, education, foster care support ... for orphans and impoverished children. They aren't a "one size fits all" organization - and that is something I specifically love. In one location, they're working to get clean water for impoverished families so that the children have time to go to school (instead of trekking far each day to retrieve clean water). In another location, older kids can't go to school because they are tasked with watching younger children - so, LWB started a school with a daycare so that the older kids can bring the younger kids for daycare while they attend school. For orphans and impoverished children with medical needs, they search far/wide to find the right doctors/medical care to help them (no matter what the need). The love that the organization shows, and the diligence, character, love and astuteness they show in all that is done is top notch. I honestly don't think organizations get any better than this one!

Love Without Boundaries has a strong commitment to financial transparency and will answer any questions you may have about how a donation is used. The reports and updates a donor receives for donations in any amount go above and beyond any other charity I have ever donated to. They truly mean it when they say "Every Child Counts"!

This is a phenomenal organization, rescuing and caring for orphans in China. The foundation is also committed to providing for the nutritional, medical, surgical, and educational needs of as many orphaned and impoverished special needs children as possible. The foundation maximizes every dollar received, in serving the best interests of these children. Love Without Boundaries gives hope and opportunity for orphaned children and youth to have fulfilling lives and hopeful futures. I'm inspired by the great work, the lives changed, because of Love Without Boundaries. LWB also has a wonderful and informative website! (lovewithoutboundaries.com)

I am a volunteer with Love Without Boundaries in their education program and am very impressed with the services given to the children there. Love Without Boundaries knows and serves each child involved. I also sponsor a child in the medical program and receive detailed monthly reports. With LWB, the child comes first--always.

As a volunteer in Shanghai, I visit and spend a lot of time with the LWB-sponsored children who come to China's top pediatric hospital, where I see firsthand how LWB strives to provide the most compassionate care possible to every single child. I also travel on an annual LWB medical trip, where I photograph children before and after cleft lip and palate surgery. Like all other LWB volunteers, I travel at my own expense. I also donate to this charity's medical fund, and I sponsor a child in foster care. I would not volunteer my time and donate my money to a charity that wasn't absolutely transparent and fiscally responsible. I am so grateful that this charity exists to advocate for orphaned and impoverished children who otherwise would have little hope. Volunteering with LWB has changed my life.
