48 World Vision registered children sponsored at Loyal Donor Appreciation Night 2019
48 World Vision registered children were sponsored at WVDF’s Loyal Donor Appreciation Night held at the Meralco Multi Purpose Hall on June 1.
The appreciation night is organized annually to celebrate and thank child sponsors for their continuous support for their sponsored children. The event was attended by loyal donors celebrating their fifth, tenth, fifteenth, and twentieth year of sponsorship, sponsored children, former sponsored children, and World Vision Ambassadors Joyce Pring and JJ Dolor.
During the event, Atty. Liwayway Vinzons-Chato, WVDF Board member, emphasized the impact of child sponsorship on both sponsors and sponsored children. “We are most grateful for your decision to be One for Children because this decision is what gives hope to the children you sponsor. It is what inspires them to work hard for their dreams. On behalf of World Vision, I would like to thank all of you for taking this journey with us.”
Mike San Diego, a former sponsored child of World Vision, also shared how his sponsor and World Vision helped him rise out of poverty. He encouraged the attendees to continue their personal social responsibility. “Malaki ang impact kapag nag-aaral ka at may sumusuporta sa iyo. I owed it to World Vision na maibalik ang magandang grades,” he shared. “God works in mysterious ways. We are blessed when our hearts are willing to share and give.”
“The kindness you have been showing for years is an overflow of God’s goodness, generosity and faithfulness,” said WVDF National Director Rommel V. Fuerte. “ In the next five years, we will continue to ensure that the most vulnerable children are well-nourished and educated and we hope that you will see us through. World Vision is strong because we have a God whom we can depend on and because we have you as our partners.”
Every child deserves a full life. Join us and make a difference.
