This beautiful and tiny little girl quickly settled into family life outside the orphanage, playing peek-a-boo with her foster mom and drinking lots of bottles-on-demand.

Growing Together: Noah and the Believe In Me Sokhem School

Eight-year-old Noah has been a student at our Believe In Me Sokhem school for almost two years. We took this photo of Noah when we first met him. Although his smile was big and vibrant, his hair was blonde due to malnutrition.  Over 40% of children in Cambodia suffer chronic malnutrition so serious that stunting and health issues are quite common. Children’s naturally dark hair will often turn blonde due to lack of good nutrition in a condition called Kwashiorkor malnutrition.

Continuing To Care For Jackson

Five years ago, LWB was contacted about a six-month-old boy from a rural village in Guizhou who had been born with a congenital heart defect. His family was desperate to get help for their son, but they were only able to raise part of the cost of his surgery. (Read more in our 2013 blog, “A Father’s Plea for Help“). Thankfully, our Unity Initiative was there to help them with the remainder of the costs, and this boy named DaLang was able to get the care he needed.

Family Reunification in Uganda

Did you know that around the world, up to 90% of children living in orphanages have at least one known living parent or relative? The sad reality is that the majority of children living in institutional care have been relinquished due to immense poverty. Love Without Boundaries has always been fully committed to helping orphaned children. In countries where we work, like Cambodia and Uganda, many parents leave their children at orphanages in pure desperation from not being able to provide them with food or education.

The Magic of Books

We are working to instill a love of reading into the children of Sokhem Village in Cambodia. Many of these children, who live in homes without electricity and water, have never experienced the magic that is found inside storybooks. Thanks to a kind supporter, we were able to build a free-standing building that will be used as a library and art center.
