There are an estimated 140 million orphaned children around the world. Children who have lost everything. When you sponsor a child, you are helping give one of these orphaned or abandoned children a family and a future.

Each sponsorship goes towards raising an individual child, so your sponsorship goes directly to the upbringing of your sponsored child. Your support will help us to give an orphaned, abandoned, or vulnerable child a loving family, where he will have the chance to grow up in a stable and loving environment. With your child sponsorship, you are directly contributing to the costs of raising the child you are sponsoring.

That means you’re providing food, clothing, parental care, housing, education, healthcare and all things needed for a happy and healthy childhood.

Thank you for helping us make a difference in his/her life in the long term!
