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

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.

Love Without Boundaries is a fantastic organization that is led with strong, holistic leadership. Love Without Boundaries is set apart by its leadership team. Amy is a compassionate individual who understands and cultivates empathetic relationships with each person she meets. Her super-power reaches its full potential with her organization. She lives by the creed of her organization, and strives to create a world that is better for each person she interacts with.

I've personally interacted with Amy, and her organization's work and I can say confidently that I trust that the world is a better place because of this organization. It deserves all the recognition it receives. I know that many more people than myself resonate with this organization's infectious energy.

I have been a volunteer for Love Without Boundaries for several years, and still every day I am touched by the passion and caring that each volunteer demonstrates for every single child that comes into one of our programs.

The work Love Without Boundaries is doing is inspirational. The lives they touch priceless and uncountable. From the children in their programs to the foster parents, from the doctors on cleft exchanges to the parents who adopt a child that otherwise may have died from a complicated heart defect they are reaching out with compassion and often what appears to be emotions raw from the loses.

They have several educational programs that are changing children's lives. I know of at least two orphans in recent weeks who passed college/university entrance exams because of the work LWB does. They help children in preschool all the way through college. Many of these children would not have had educational opportunities without them because of being orphaned or because of poverty. They provide funding for orphans and rural children, and they provide training for teachers.

The people of this organization are what make it so great. They are changing the world one child at a time.

I have seen the work that LWB does for the children and rural families in China for 8+ years now and know that they have saved lives and changed countless more lives around the world by what they are doing for the children of China. No child is turned away, every child matters, they care deeply, they cry when a child doesn't make it, they cry when help comes too late, they work countless hours for these children, all as volunteers, none of them for a salary, they do so much because they truly want to be the difference in the life of a child, being able to LIVE! So that every child might be able to live, have good nutrition, a good education, quality medical care & of all, to know unconditional love of a forever family.

While neither of my Chinese adopted daughters benifitted directly from Love Without Boundaries, both of their orphanages have since become homes to numerous LWB programs! I couldn't ever in my lifetime say enough positive words about Love Without Boundaries. Their name describes exactly who they are and what they do. They Love children Without and Boundaries holding them back from their goals!!!!! The simple fact the Chinese government trusts them enough to allow them to do their work proves endless coups on their part!!!

My daughter was an orphan in China and was enrolled in a Preschool program in her orphanage that made a huge impact on her. She received extra attention and was encouraged to learn in a safe environment with teachers who cared about her well being. We were able to adopt her about 6 months later and she had no developmental delays at all. Our daughter has special needs and they didn't allow that to interfere with her right to have love and education. I am very thankful and supportive of Love Without Boundaries and the love they have for children and the right of every child to receive medical care, nutrition, education and love.

I can't imagine an organization that provides more "hands on" good than Love Without Boundaries Foundation. The work they do is so desperately needed, and life-changing to those they serve. They are angels to children who have nothing, and their work is truly remarkable.

As an adoptive parent of a daughter born with special needs from China, I am SO proud of the work that Love Without Boundaries does on behalf of the children in need. From helping families stay together, to transforming lives by providing life-changing, life-saving care, via nutrition, education, surgeries and aftercare through healing homes and foster families, they are truly an amazing organization and have more-than lived up to their name by showing true and unconditional LOVE WITHOUT BOUNDARIES!!

Love Without Boundaries is a wonderful organization. I leared about their work while we were waiting to travel to China to adopt our baby girl. About that same time, they were beginning a nutrition program at our daughter's orphanage. It was a wonderful way for us to help provide for our daughter's basic needs until we were able to go and get her. Now we are able to do the same for other precious children. They do so many things to improve the quality of life for orphans. I love this organization.

I am the mom of three children adopted from China. Two of them were lucky enough to be in Social Welfare Institutions where LWB works. LWB's programs benefit so many children. My kids were helped by the nutrition and educational programs and we are certain that LWB's support helped them become the healthy and happy children they are today. We currently help sponsor the education of a child in the SWI my daughter is from.

I was briefly a volunteer for LWB (would still be one if not for a full-time job and the activities of three kids) and so got a first-hand look at the organization. I can't imagine a group of volunteers that are more dedicated and passionate about their work. LWB has made a huge difference in the lives of so many people all over the world, not just the children they help, but the families who have been blessed by adopting these children. Love Without Boundaries is an amazing organization!
