This month we have been introducing you to a few of the students in our Impoverished Student Support program who are in need of sponsors. It’s Charlotte’s turn to be featured, and we thought it help you get to know her by showing some scenes of her village and home.
Charlotte’s father passed away and her mother left the family and cannot be located, and so Charlotte lives with her grandparents and an uncle in rural Fujian province. Charlotte’s grandparents pick tea when they can to try to make ends meet. Read more.

Lives were changed forever during our 2010 Physical Therapy Exchange. Just look at this boy’s excitement as he receives a walker of his very own, allowing him to walk independently for the first time ever!
In less than two weeks, Love Without Boundaries’ 2014 Physical Therapy exchange will commence, and we hope to experience once again the joy that is written all over this boy’s face. Read more.
Herakles was born in rural Guizhou Province with a heart defect and an intestinal obstruction. Through LWB’s Medical Program, he received life-saving surgery for both conditions.
When I first got actively involved with charity work in China, I kept hearing about a wonderful foster care program in Guiyang, Guizhou which was supposedly one of the largest foster care programs in that country. Over the years, we were contacted by many foster families there who hoped LWB could provide medical care, such as heart surgeries, to the children they were caring for. We were always happy to help. As those children were adopted, I would often hear from their new parents about how loved their children were in foster care.
This past April, we finally met in person with the heads of this program, a married Chinese couple who have been fostering children since 1999.
Mighty Jay was welcomed into LWB’s True Children’s Healing Home (TCHH) in Fujian last month, and he immediately treated us all to a big, wide smile!
Jay is two months old and was born with a severe bilateral cleft lip and palate. His condition can prove difficult to care for by busy orphanage staff due to the special time and attention his feeding needs present. TCHH is a perfect fit for Jay, where he has been eating, sleeping, and growing like a champ! Read more.
