Complex Hearts

Most people who’ve heard the story of Love Without Boundaries know that it all began with one baby boy born with congenital heart disease and a group of parents who wanted to help him. Since 2003, we’ve provided life-changing operations to thousands of orphaned and impoverished children, with over 750 of those receiving heart surgery.

Prayers for Luna

Last month we learned about a baby from southern China with complex heart issues. Her orphanage had arranged for her to be seen in Beijing, but the surgeons there felt the little girl was inoperable, and so with that very sad diagnosis, they sent her back home.

LWB is fortunate to partner regularly with the Children’s Hospital of Fudan University in Shanghai, and so we offered to have Luna seen by the expert heart surgeons there. She arrived to the hospital extremely weak, struggling to feed because even that simple act would exhaust her. Read more.
