Emergency Food Relief in India

We recently discussed the situation of orphanages in western Odisha, India with YCDA, our partner for foster care there. They informed us that there are 16 orphanages which are registered by the government but receive no government support. Normally, these orphanages rely on local donations for the children, but with the rapid spread of COVID in the region, most local donations have come to a halt. This region is already severely impoverished, so the 533 children living in these orphanages are in great need of emergency food relief.

Empowering the Children of Rangsei: Hot Lunch Program

Over 40% of children in Cambodia suffer chronic malnutrition so serious that stunting and health issues are common. In many cases, the children’s naturally dark hair will turn blonde due to lack of good nutrition in a condition called Kwashiorkor malnutrition.  We’re working to change that number through our hot lunch program in our Believe in Me schools. Every day, cooks at our Believe In Me hot lunch program work hard to produce a nutritious meal for the 180 children who attend the school.  The kitchen facilities they use are very basic, and electricity is unavailable.

Celebrating 15 Years of Love: Jaci

Back in 2004, the government of China launched an unprecedented medical project known as the Tomorrow Plan. This ambitious program would help provide surgeries to thousands of orphaned children with medical needs. Love Without Boundaries was honored to become the first foreign charity to provide funding for the Tomorrow Plan, and we helped arrange the first eight heart surgeries ever done under the program. We chose four children from the Haikou orphanage on Hainan Island and four children from the Shantou orphanage in Guangdong province. The tiniest baby to receive heart surgery was a baby who came to be known as Little Monkey.
