LWB's Real Impact
When LWB's Board of Directors drafted our mission statement, the word AUTHENTIC was front and center on what Love Without Boundaries must always be.
Your Donation Truly Makes a Difference
We have all given to charities that never contacted us again on how our funds were used, and we have all read news stories on charities that somehow lose track of money entrusted to them or use smoke and mirrors to report results. That is not who we are.
When you give to LWB, we want you to know the impact you have made on the lives of children. We want you to know there is not a black hole into which your funds disappear; instead there are amazing kids in our programs who directly benefit from your kindness.
Our CEO has set a standard of unimpeachable ethics for everything we do. At LWB, we make decision as if the children in our care were our own sons and daughters. We know our work does not just magically happen. Every piece of LWB is a direct result of wonderful people like you getting involved to make a difference, and we never take that for granted.

"I really like the hot lunch program at school. Before I didn’t get to eat lunch because my dad doesn’t have enough money to feed everyone in the family. I eat as much as I can during the LWB lunch so then if I don’t get dinner at night I don’t feel as hungry."
Ruby, 1st grader at LWB's Believe in Me Sokhem School in Cambodia
"I’m so grateful to LWB and their donors for providing medical care to me which allowed my leg to be saved. It was a gift I will never forget the rest of my life. Because my broken femur was repaired, I can now go back to school, which gives me real hope."
Charles helped through LWB's Medical Program
"I'm so grateful for LWB to come work in our community. I got a serious burn in a cooking fire, but LWB did everything to make me smile again. After a few weeks I recovered and went back to school and I love school so much. I have made many friends and my best friend is Rosie."
Anna, helped through LWB's Education and Medical Programs
"I can't express the great difference LWB has made to our orphanage. Now every baby who arrives to us has access to emergency medical care, saving so many lives."
Whenever I hear him say, "I love you mom," my heart melts. I can feel what an orphaned child needs so badly... a mom's love and the love of a family. I feel he and I are somehow destined to be part of each other's life. While I give him the love he deserves, he brings laughter to our home and makes our lives fulfilled."
Foster Mother in LWB's Foster Care Program
"From the first hug we give to a baby upon arrival to the last kiss when they graduate and we must say goodbye, we get to see the fragile baby grow and learn to trust and smile again. We feel so happy to see he or she gets a second life. The day we see a child off for their life is always one filled with such mixed emotions. We feel so sad to say goodbye to a child we have cared for, but we are happy for them that they get so much love and care from around the world. This makes me feel my job is so meaningful."
Nanny in LWB's Healing Homes Program
From parents who adopted children in LWB care:
“Love Without Boundaries supported all of my daughter’s needs beginning with cleft lip repair surgery at 8 months old, enrolling her in foster care at 12 months old, and paying for preschool at age 4. Her foster family’s love and her preschool experience eased her transition to her life post-adoption.”
“We are forever grateful to the Love Without Boundaries foster program in Changzhi. They provided our daughter with a foster home full of love and joy. We believe this is a huge part of what made her transition into our family so smooth. She is a child filled with joy and love overflows from her. We know this is because of the love she received while in LWB care.”
“Thanks to the treasure trove of photos and reports we received from LWB after our daughter's adoption, she has a beautiful lifebook bursting with information we would not have had otherwise. This is crucial to our daughter and her identity as she explores and makes meaning of her story.”
"While my child was still an orphan in China, LWB organized and funded her life-saving surgery. Not only did they save her life, but the medical records they were then able to provide to us after her adoption were invaluable to her continued treatment plan. We are so thankful to LWB for loving her even before we knew her!"
“LWB changed the lives of two little girls by providing life altering surgery for them in their first year of life. They then became part of our family and changed the course of our lives forever, in ways we only dreamt might occur."
