Love Without Boundaries(LWB) provides the most compassionate and dedicated help to orphaned and impoverished children in China. This is accomplished through five different programs. One of these programs is healing homes.
There are times that babies with medical needs in the orphanage system need an extra dose of tender loving care. These children are among the most vulnerable due to being born with special needs that often cannot be met in an institutional setting. Healing homes are staffed with well-trained nannies who devote their time to the careful nurturing of these children. Through their medical work in China, they have realized that orphaned children born with cleft lip and palate often become failure to thrive babies due to their inability to feed properly. It’s heartbreaking as life in a crowded institution can be a true struggle to survive for a child born with cleft.
In 2008, LWB opened the Anhui Cleft Healing Home, welcoming the babies with cleft into a safe and warm environment. The careful feeding of the children is being provided by devoted nannies, and then the children receive surgery to correct their cleft lip at the first possible opportunity. LWB’s second healing home, Henan Cleft Healing Home opened in June 2009, providing nurturing care to cleft effected children of one of China’s poorest provinces.

According to an ancient Chinese legend when a child is born, an invisible red thread connects the child’s soul to everyone who will play a part in that child’s life, present and future. Whether you believe in this ancient legend or not, through sponsorship or adoption you connect with a child born in a country with a history of 4000 years.
Every new-born has a purpose. Children at cleft healing homes are waiting to find their place in this world. One of the children who are currently waiting for sponsorship is baby Neil. This beautiful child is living at the Henan Cleft Healing Home, waiting for a kind soul to give him a chance. For a sponsorship of $50 a month, you can help Neil have a new beginning on life!
