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.

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 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

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)

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.

I sponsor a little boy in a healing home. The monthly updates I get are OUTSTANDING. There are so many great photos and such great information about this little boy. I love seeing how much he grows each month and what new things he can do. I love seeing how his personality is developing. I have sponsored children in other programs and there reports and updates are lacking so much. LWB just does a great job overall. Love this charity and all they do to help the Orphans in China.

I adore the work LWB does in China - from medical surgeries to foster care to education to their Unity Fund. They are the first foundation I turn to when I am looking to donate because I always know the money is going directly to the children through their strong programs on the ground in China and because i get updated with colorful reports on the children and programs we have donated to. Top notch foundation!

We have sponsored children in LWB's medical, healing homes and foster care programs and are always so pleased to see that LWB utilizes our donation to directly help the children. This organization is a world-wide network of volunteers who desire to help orphans in China and donate all of their time and work. LWB's communication with sponsors is frequent and includes photos of the children that clearly show their progress, be it from surgical intervention or the loving arms of a foster family. Recommend highly!

This organization is amazing! So professionally operated, yet with such a caring heart that shines through in their regular communications to donors such as myself. The difference they make in the lives of these precious children cannot be overestimated. I love how they work closely with the Chinese authorities and local people - and everyone should consider supporting their Unity Fund!!!

This organization does wonders for special needs orphans in China. As a donor to their foster care program, I get monthly reports for my sponsor child. I love to read about the antics of the little guy I sponsor and see him grow in the monthly pictures! They have a great group of volunteers that do a huge amount of the work, so your money goes a long way.

I have been very impressed with LWB. As a donor, I want to be sure that my donation is being spent intelligently. I have read that LWB spends less than 10% on overhead and fundraising. This is astoundingly low. I also read their blog and facebook posts, and it's clear that the organization is really passionate about their cause.

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!

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.

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!
