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 provide nurturing foster care in both China and Cambodia, including our new Safe Haven foster care program for trafficked or abused children. Our foster care program has allowed over 3500 children to live in home-care versus an institution. 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’s medical program continues to provide surgeries to children abandoned with conditions such as cleft lip, spinal tumors, 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 Unity Initiative for impoverished children also provides heart surgeries when their parents are unable to afford care. Additionally, our Cleft Initiative continues to bring educational materials and specialized bottles to families of cleft-affected children throughout China by partnering with maternity hospitals. In 2017, LWB held our latest cleft surgery exchange in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, providing new smiles to children from throughout the country. In India, LWB is partnering with Mission Smile to provide life-changing surgery to children in Kolkata born with cleft lip. * Our Healing Homes program provides care to vulnerable babies who have been abandoned with medical needs. Our Anhui and Heartbridge Healing Homes are located in China, and our Mukono Baby Room is located in Uganda. *LWB's education program helps children of all ages with several different programs. Over 3700 children have received access to education, from preschool through college. Our Believe in Me schools in rural Cambodia provide primary school education to children in remote villages, while our orphanage school in China serves children born with medical needs which prevent them from attending public school. * Our nutrition program is helping to provide much needed formula, cereal and hot lunches to children of all ages in LWB programs. We help provide specialized baby formula to children with issues such as prematurity and milk allergies. LWB provides daily hot lunch to the children in our Cambodian schools, as childhood malnutrition rates are extremely high in the rural regions where we are working.

Target demographics: Orphaned and impoverished children

Direct beneficiaries per year: Hundreds of children through our programs located throughout the world.

Geographic areas served: Cambodia, China, India, and Uganda

Programs: LWB has four main focus areas: healing, education, foster care and nutrition.

I love Love Without Boundaries. I have been involved with them for eight years and know that each child they care for is put first, cared for and loved. They fight for the children that noone else is fighting for, and have saved the lives of many through the medical care they help make possible. They also provide education to the impoverished, in areas where school hasn't been available before. Sponsors get regular updates. All of my interactions with LWB have shown that they are ethical and wise with donations.

I have been a volunteer for Love Without Boundaries Foundation since December 2006. The work done by this charity over the years has been amazing. So many lives changed by medical procedures that have saved lives and put them on the path for adoption. Even many who will not have the opportunity to be adopted have been helped nutritionally and educationally. I donate to very few organizations that I trust and LWB is one of them. An incredible amount of the work to put these programs into practice is done by volunteers. They are an excellent example of service and accountability.

I have one daughter that was helped by LWB's education program, and I have been a volunteer for Love Without Boundaries for almost 4 years. It is a privilege to help so many children through my work and know that through the volunteer efforts of many others as well, a lot of children are helped medically, educationally, emotionally and physically. I think LWB does an amazing work.

Love Without Boundaries really believes in its motto that ever child counts and has a team of dedicated people who knows that every small action counts. It has been wonderful volunteering with LWB and knowing that I'm making a difference in a child's life - however small. LWB is very well organized and communicates effectively to everyone inside and outside the organization

2 of my 4 children received medical care while they lived in China before our family adopted them. I have been a volunteer now for several years and we have helped raised funds to support the medical programs offered by LWB. We also donate to LWB.

We sponsor a little girl in a healing home in this program. It is wonderful getting monthly updates on her and seeing how much she has grown and what new things she can do. We love seeing her photos and hearing how she is doing after surgery. Its a wonderful charity and we love to sponsor their mission to help children in China.

Full disclosure--I am a volunteer with Love Without Boundaries, and have, at my own expense, traveled with the organization on medical missions for children with cleft lip and palate. I can vouch for the consideration and love that goes into each of the Love Without Boundaries' programs. The child is foremost, and with the cultural awareness and respect that is part of every endeavor, entire communities benefit long term. Love Without Boundaries lives up to its name in all it does.

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 learn about Love without Boundaries in the most wonderful way - through the adoption of my grand daughters. One in particular was helped in a way that was only possible because of LWB. She was in their healing home after having life changing surgery, also made possible by LWB. They then placed her with a foster care family, that took excellent care of her until her adoption. I am so grateful to this organization and impressed by the number of programs around the world they now foster.

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 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 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"!
