The COVID-19 pandemic has made the already difficult situation
more desperate. While everyone is affected, the most vulnerable are the ones who suffer the most.
As the list of needs grows, the list of reasons to help grows with it.
Giving Aid through Child Sponsorship
Child sponsorship provides long-term solutions and life-changing essentials like clean water, food, healthcare, and education to children in need. Your support helps your sponsored child and his family break free from poverty, enabling them to build a sustainable future.
Sponsoring a child is one of the most personal, effective ways to fight poverty. Your donations are combined with those of other sponsors to lift your sponsored child and their community out of poverty. Sponsorship also gives you the chance to build a connection with your beneficiary, allowing him or her to see a world beyond their communities. Many sponsored children were able to achieve greater things than what was previously possible, all because someone invested in them. Most importantly, sponsorship gives children hope that a brighter future awaits.
For every child you help, four more children will benefit too.
