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.

We adopted our two year old daughter who received life saving open heart surgery, nutrition and loving care through LWB. I feel certain she wouldn't be here today if it were not for LWB. There are no words to describe our gratitude for the love and care she received. We are so thankful to all the nannies, doctors, sponsors and LWB volunteers who supported and prayed for our little one until we got to her. I have just started volunteering with LWB in the past few weeks to try to give back for all done with our daughter. We love LWB and have never been more impressed with an organization that truly lives out their name - love without boundaries.

I adopted a 12 year old girl from China that had the privilege of being in LWB programs in her orphanage. She has been home 2 years and I have come to learn that LWB was responsible for her being put in school, tutoring after school, encouragement and support of her through her adoption and many field trip experiences. All of this was non-existent before LWB was established at her orphanage. I currently am bringing home 2 more girls who are enrolled in LWB programs in their orphanage and I am thankful for the role they are playing in their lives until their forever family can get there. I have seen first hand what this organization and individuals involved with this organization can do and what an impact they have in children's iives, as a result i have recently volunteered my time with them as a small token to what the organization has done for my children as well as thousands of other children.

My husband and I adopted twins from China in 2004 who had their cleft like repaired by LWB. The work they did was amazing. Also the communication we received from them about our daughters was priceless. Over the years we have continued to provide funding for other kids and again the communication of how our funds were used was amazing.

My husband now works with the board of directors and he tells me daily how much they care for these little ones in China.

LWB is simply incredible!

We adopted two older girls who were part of the LWB Believe In Me School in Anhui, China. We feel our girls benefited so much from what LWB has offered them. If LWB had not come in to their orphanage, I know our girls would be struggling more in school. They love school and said they loved school in China. We are forever grateful for LWB and the people who helped our girls while they were living in China.

We adopted our newest daughter when she was almost 14 years old. LWB set up schooling for our daughter and many other older children just a few years ago at her orphanage. If it were not for the few years of public schooling and tutoring that she received, she would have had much more struggles in school than she does. They also provided the older kids with opportunities to sing/perform in public, and go on various field trips to give them new life experiences. I believe these field trips were very good for broadening our daughter's knowledge of the world around her. In addition, I believe the performances and tutoring helped build our daughter's self esteem. LWB sent us several CDs of pictures of our daughter for the last 4-5 years of her life. Some of those CDs contained her progress that she made from when she began school to how she was doing recently in school. In addition, LWB was very receptive to concerns we had when we adopted a previous child several years ago as an older toddler. They stepped in and checked out the older children's nutritional needs and made more protein and snacks available for the children. They also made it possible recently for children younger than 3 years old to begin attending their Believe in Me school onsite at the orphanage, which is a huge plus that they now can offer this to the younger children. LWB is a very caring, responsive, and financially responsible organization. We have donated to this organization many times and recommended them as a charity to our friends and family. I hold them in high esteem.

As an adoptive mom of a little girl who turned five the day we met her and was fortunate enough to be taken care of by the LWB team, I will be forever grateful. After our first adoption from Huainan in 2003, my 13 yr old son wrote a poem for the Love's Journey book that LWB made to raise funds. We have sponsored children and projects for many years and have seen the children blossom in their care. Little did we know that our fourth little girl from China would benefit from life saving surgery funded by LWB as a newborn, eat nutritious food everyday through the nutrition program and attend the Believe in Me School in Huainan funded by LWB. She was also sponsored and placed in a loving foster home through LWB. After we brought her home in July, we received about 100 precious pictures and foster care reports that will be treasured in her life book. She has done so well on every level since coming home. Having all this support has made her transition incredibly peaceful. She started kindergarten and attached to her forever family readily. I know her ability to be both resilient and successful n transitioning to our family and school is directly a result of the head start during these formative years from LWB. We are sponsoring a little girl from her orphanage and get reports to follow her progress with the hopes that she too will find a family. Thank you to all the volunteers that make every dollar count and every child matter. 5 stars indeed! Beth Flanders mom to Kerry Wa Flanders from LWB Huainan aka Huai Rui Wa

Love Without Boundaries is a charity that makes a real difference in the lives of children every day. I have seen this first hand because LWB funded critical medical and foster care that my daughter received in China. I have photos of my daughter in the hospital grinning from ear to ear because LWB not only funded her surgery but brought her a giant teddy bear to cheer her up! LWB is an organization with great heart that delivers vital services to children in need. I will be forever grateful for what they have done.

Our daughter was part of the LWB program in Loudi. She came to us on-track developmentally, healthy, well-adjusted, and was clearly used to being in a family setting. Foster care is so important and LWB not only provides sponsors for foster care, but also keeps monthly records for each child. After our adoption was complete, we received numerous pictures and reports of our daughter's early life. Precious pieces of her history that we all will treasure forever.

My child was served by medical (cleft repair) , education, and foster care. She was five when we met this spring and was on target developmentally and obviously was well loved and cared for. What could have been a challenging adoption was relatively easy. My daughter's care prepared her for accepting the love of a family and attending school at grade level. We are blessed and lucky that our daughter was cared for by Love Without Boundaries.

Our daughter received exceptional nutritional assistance through this organization as an infant. We were SO grateful once we met her and got her home that she was healthy and well nourished. This made such a difference in her development. I can't thank them enough!

Our family has been personally affected by LWB's amazing educational program. We were blessed to adopt our 4 year old son from Jinjiang, China in Sept. 2010. His orphanage is part of the LWB nutritional, educational, & medical program. Our was son was a student in the phenomenal preschool that was offered by LWB to his orphanage. He was given the opportunity to attend daily class and I know he truly enjoyed that time with his classmates and teachers. LWB gave our son a precious gift...the gift to be noticed and cared for...the gift to be part of a structured environment where he was loved as an individual and encouraged to excel and have fun.

Our daughter was in the Love Without Boundaries foster care program in Loudi, China in 2006 prior to her adoption. We are forever grateful for the program. Our daughter had a family that gave her love, affection, and attention that she might not have received had she been one of many in an orphanage. She adjusted very well to her forever family because of that individualized care. Everyone at Love Without Boundaries are heroes to so many children and their families.

Actually, my daughter is one of the many "clients" served by LWB. When she was an orphan, living in China, LWB ran a nutrition program in the orphanage system where my daughter was being cared for. Their oversight and generousity provided not just my daughter but many precious babies with healthy food and formula. Their broad-based care programs provide such a wonderful variety of resources, and their commitment to helping families care for their children within China as well as caring for orphans while they wait for families makes LWB one of our favorite non-profits to support and share with friends.
