What the Sponsors Say

Karen Davila, Broadcast Journalist


Being a child sponsor and an advocate for World Vision has genuinely changed my life. It has made me more blessed and happier. I believe in World Vision Child Sponsorship because it changes children's lives, giving them a chance at a better future. So kung kaya ninyo, tumulong na kayo dahil it's really worth trying. It's putting our faith in action."

I have been sponsoring a child from Palawan, named Dominic, thru World Vision, since 2004. I can’t believe how time flies by so fast. Then, he was only 9, excited to step on the 4th Grade. Now, he’s already turning 14, only 3 years shy of college. I simply cannot believe it. I am just so proud of this kid. He always tells me how he’s doing at school and his lifelong walk with the Lord.

I have been sponsoring a child from Palawan, named Dominic, thru World Vision, since 2004. I can’t believe how time flies by so fast. Then, he was only 9, excited to step on the 4th Grade. Now, he’s already turning 14, only 3 years shy of college. I simply cannot believe it. I am just so proud of this kid. He always tells me how he’s doing at school and his lifelong walk with the Lord.

I remember fondly Dominic’s dream. That someday, he would like to be a doctor so that he would be able to help the people in his village. You see, when you help a child thru World Vision, not only you help the kid secure a brighter future, you also help the people your kid pays the kindness forward to.

What inspired me to share my blessings thru World Vision was the interaction the sponsors have with the children. It always excites me to receive a letter from Dominic even after 5 years.

Unfortunately, the distance cuts the flow of our communication. Every letter I get from him, I immediately write back. And each time this happens, I always have a new story to tell because too much time has already passed. That is why I didn’t even realize that it has already been 5 years since I started this incredible friendship with Dominic. I do not really mind because I know in my heart that I will meet him someday soon.

My friendship with Dominic also strengthened my relationship with the Lord. Thinking of Dominic always reminds to be humble and appreciate the things in life that you already have. Some people just throw P20 a day. Remember that P20 a day can secure a child’s future, thru World Vision. I encourage you to spare P20 a day and make an impact to someone’life. Remember 2 Corinthians 9:9, “As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”

"Armed with only P700 in my pocket, I charged to the mall for a midnight sale. But when I got there I was drawn, instead to a World Vision booth and eventually sponsored a child. I went there hunging for a good bargain but with the P450 I spent, I got even more. I left the mall with a child's picture folder and a bigger heart."

"As a child living in the slums of General Santos City, attaining a college degree was nothing but a farfetched deam. But when somebody helped me through World Vision's Child Sponsorship program, I was able to finish college. My life has come full circle. I am now in a position to return the favor by sponsoring a child from Cebu."

"I believe helping others is something everybody was born to do. At the very least, any financially capable individual should help somebody. Not just his or her
loved ones, but others and their communities so they can live better lives."
