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 has done immeasurable work to help orphaned children in China. We adopted our daughter in 2006 and were so distressed to see the conditions in which the children had to live in her orphanage. No toys, very little attention, etc. Just monts later, LWB went in and started a preschool and a foster care program. In addition, a playground was added for the children. This is just one area they made a huge difference, they have done the same at numerous orphanages in China.

Love Without Boundaries started as the dream of one adoptive mother, who I have had the pleasure of knowing for over 10 years. We started our journeys to adopt childen in China at the same time and I've watched her dream grow with the addition of hundreds of other adoptive parents and people who care about orphans and poor children. LWB uses every cent possible to change the lives of children in China through their nutritional programs, medical care and educational facitilies. With an administrative overhead of less than 10%, my family and friends are assured that our donations are making a difference in the world.
We love Love Without Boundaries!

This is a wonderful chairty that helps orphaned and ill children who desperately need medical attention. Through LWB, these children are provided with the medical attention no matter how much and how specialized the care needed is. They never cease to stop, thankfully!!! They give these children a chance for a very healthy and happy life!! Without LWB, these children most of which would die. Some would survive with little ability to thrieve and be adopted. I firmly believe in Love Without Boundaries and have donated several thousands of dollars to these children, proudly, because they are so deserving. Each chlid is in my heart. Thank you.

I am a mother of two little girls adopted from China. I feel very blessed and wanted to help other orphans in China. I had heard of Love Without Boundaries and was familiar with their work in China. Then I had the opportunity to hear Amy Eldridge, founder, speak about her organization. I was hooked. I made my first donation that night. I began receiving reports and keeping up to date with all Love Without Boundaries does. They really help children in need. My primary experience has been with Heartbridge. This is one of their healing homes that brings in medically fragile orphans and takes care of them before, during and after their surgery. You can see the results in their pictures and reports. These children receive the love and care necessary to heal. I wish I was more eloquent. I just want everyone to know that this organization is amazing. Please visit their website and check them out. Please donate to this awesome charity.

I can't sing the praises of LWB loudly enough! I have an adopted daughter from China and my heart hurts for the orphans left behind, especially those with special medical needs. Love Without Boundaries seems to work miracles at times with the orphans under their care. I have sponsored several children in their Heartbridge Healing Home and have watched their progress with amazement. These babies have a chance for a real life and the love a family because of the extraordinary work done by the volunteers at LWB and their employees in China. They do so much with the donations. I'm impressed with their stewardship of their funds and their desire to maximize the benefits for the children they are helping.

Love Without Boundaries is truly the most authentic organization I know of!
Started by an every day mom moved by what she saw in an orphanage while she was adopting her child from China. She came home, couldn't shake off what she had seen, prayed, and miracles happened and continue to happen. Why? Because she put love into actual action. Orphans have the very heart of God and He backs people who fight for orphans. God puts all Heaven behind saving the lives of these hero children. The bottom line question to ask yourself is this; "Is there anything sadder in life than a sick child alone in the world?"
Since there is not. Love Without Boundaries works for change in this world!
They are simply the BEST! They make a difference by saving one child at a time!

I am an adoptive parent currently in process of adopting two more children. I heard that the Social Welfare Institute, where my children are waiting for me, was lacking in providing stimulation and I approached Love Without Boundaries to see if they could help make a difference for the children in the SWI if we could raise the necessary funds. Love Without Boundaries was very open to helping and contacted the SWI director to make sure providing developmental toys and things would be well received. I am happy to say that we've raised enough money and Love Without Boundaries is now working to get the things in place in the SWI so the children can get the stimulation they need to grow and develop. I have found Love Without Boundaries to be caring, professional and quick in communication. You can see their love for the children they serve showing in all of the work that they do, which is great and serves many orphans. I also know that the vast majority of the money that is donated is going directly to helping orphans since LWB overhead is so low. That especially makes me feel good about advocating for people to donate to this organization and I know their work is making a difference in the lives of children.
