Overseas Child Sponsorship

A CHILD DESPERATELY NEEDS YOUR SPONSORSHIP …

LogoA homeless child is content to find shelter under a piece of tin and be given a cup of coffee with a piece of moldy bread and overly ripe papaya.

CAN YOU DO MORE TO HELP?

The facts:

  1. Every five seconds a child dies from hunger.
  2. 22,000 children die each day due to poverty.
  3. Two-thirds of the world’s population live in poverty.
  4. The world’s hungriest children live in Bangladesh, the Congo, India, Indonesia and Pakistan.
