Love Without Reason is a global organization that was created to Love, Transform and Reintegrate victims of Human Trafficking and those born with Craniofacial Deformities. One in 700 children are born with a facial cleft around the world. Those children with untreated conditions live in humiliation, isolation and are ostracized from society. More importantly they have difficulty with their speech, feeding and health conditions. These children are not allowed in schools because of their facial deformities, hence they grow up to be neglected and undermined by society. Children with facial deformities are also at-risk for being trafficked into Child Beggary, Bonded Labor, Sex Trafficking and Organ Harvesting.
Our model helps provide 100% cost-free surgeries for children living in poor and developing countries thereby reducing the risk of them being sold into human trafficking networks.
LWR was founded on December 11, 2007 as a US 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation. As a result of their personal experiences with their son, Philip, who was born with Goldenhar’s Syndrome, co-founders, Susan and Santhosh Mathews envisioned an organization to help people born with craniofacial deformities around the world. LWR was born out of a dream that every child deserves a chance to life. This dream has expanded to include the cause of countless men, women and children who are lured into sex trafficking. We are passionate about the plight of these individuals, and desire to provide and build services that support and empower them to be the best they were created to be.
Love Without Reason (LWR) is dedicated to helping these children, adults and their families. We work with our US and international partners to bring life-changing, life-saving reconstructive surgical procedures to those of the developing world. Through aggressive, but culturally sensitive awareness training, we are reaching the children and teaching their neighbors to support rather than shun. LWR is also committed to serving those children, women and men rescued from forced labor and/or human trafficking situations.
