Education for All

Today we want to introduce you to just a few of the amazing kids who are hoping to have the chance to continue to attend school through our Believe in Me orphanage school program in Lanzhou. For less than $1 per day, you could sponsor one of these children for a month and receive quarterly updates and photos of them and their school-day adventures.  Even better, you would be providing a life-changing experience for a child who doesn’t have another opportunity for education.

Opening a New Believe In Me School

Yesterday we blogged about our very first Believe in Me school, which we opened in 2004.  Today we wanted to write about the process it takes to open a school inside a Chinese orphanage, as we are often asked by orphanages and adoptive parent groups to please consider opening a school in a certain location.

Believing In Every Child

In early 2004, Love Without Boundaries was working with the Shantou orphanage in Guangdong province.  Dr. Huang, the orphanage doctor at the time, told us how very sad he was that so many children in the orphanage were unable to attend school due to being born with special needs which weren’t readily accepted by society.

At the time, this included children born with issues such as missing limbs, albinism, cerebral palsy, and other health needs.  Many public schools were not willing to accept these children as students, and so the Shantou orphanage had many children who were not receiving any type of education at all.   Read more.

Healing Heart Defects: A Team Effort

When one of LWB’s China Medical Directors is asked to help a child with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) it is just the first step in a long journey of hope through healing.

Our first step is to determine the type of CHD. There are more than 40 different types of heart defects with a range of severity for each case. LWB’s Medical team gets evaluations in China as well as from a team of specialists on our Medical Advisory Board to determine what type of surgery the child will need and what other type of care they will require.
