Love Without Boundaries:
LWB provides the most loving and compassionate help possible to orphaned and impoverished children in China. They do this through six main program areas: medical, education, nutrition, foster care, special assistance, and healing homes.

Love Without Boundaries began in the year 2003, after a group of adoptive parents came together to help save the life of one tiny boy in China. Following his successful heart surgery, they realized that people with a pure love for helping children can truly make a difference. LWB incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charity in the state of Oklahoma, and their worldwide team of volunteers went to work. In just five short years, their foundation has grown from providing a handful of surgeries and baby formula in 2003 to touching the lives of thousands of children today through foster care, medical, education, and nutrition programs. They work hard to maintain their overhead as low as possible in order to help the most children. In 2008, their overhead was less than 10%!!! That is almost unheard of in the non-profit world. That means 90 cents of every dollar donated goes to providing children with needed treatment and nutrition!

Below is a picture of a little boy from Georgiana's SWI, Zhangshu City SWI, who is in need of cleft and hernia repair surgery. His name is Zhong. LWB is raising funds to pay for his surgery. They currently need $1290 more before the surgery can be scheduled.

Please consider donating to LWB to help Zhong receive the surgery he needs to have a happy and healthy life. Even a small donation will bring him closer to the goal! Click on the link below to go to the LWB site. Donations can be made with a credit card, you will be emailed a receipt.
