Safe Haven Foster Care: Pandemic Update

Love Without Boundaries’ Safe Haven foster care program works in the field of anti-trafficking.  We are so grateful to all of our supporters who make this important program of refuge possible.  It’s a real comfort to know that all of the children in this program are being cared for safely at their foster homes during the global pandemic. While the schools are currently closed, the education of the children in our Safe Haven foster care program is still going strong. Thanks to donors’ generosity, all students in our program went home with activity books, paper, pencils, and anything else we could source.

Join Us In the Fight Against Child Trafficking: Safe Haven Foster Care

This week, we’re asking 16 people to step forward and sponsor a child in our Safe Haven foster care program in Cambodia. This critical project, for children who’ve been trafficked or abused, provides family-based care to children who have lived through the unthinkable. Every child in this program has sadly experienced extreme trauma in their young lives. To best help them heal, we continually seek out experts in the trauma field for their expertise and wisdom. We’ve learned that 90% of the healing process with rescued children is getting them to feel safe.

Foster Care in China

LWB first began foster care in China back in 2004. Over the last 15 years, we’ve supported family-based care for over 3,500 orphaned children there, across 26 different cities. I have yet to meet a good-hearted orphanage director who hasn’t privately agreed that the children in their care placed with loving foster parents do far better developmentally in the long run than children in institutional care.

From Helplessness to Hope

When I first started going overseas almost 20 years ago, I encountered an all-too-familiar sight of children begging for money. Like so many, my first inclination was to dig into my purse to help out, but a visit to one particular city opened my eyes to the horrific realities of many children on the street. I will never forget getting out of the taxi and having children who were painfully thin begin to crawl towards me, pulling themselves by their arms. Many of the children’s legs were bent in such completely unnatural ways, and I stupidly asked my guide why so many in this one location were severely disabled. She whispered to me that there wasn’t an orphanage in this region, and so it was secretly known that gangs would pick up any abandoned babies and children to use for begging. To make the children even more pitiful, she told me that “bad men” would break the children’s limbs repeatedly so they’d be more effective beggars.
