Have you ever considered sponsoring a child? In other words, have you ever considered caring for a child you do not know and probably never will, but needs a roof over its head, food in its stomach and some unconditional love? With a simple donation every month, you can help provide comfort to a child and his/her village through a number of non-profit organizations.
World Vision is one of the largest and most respected “Christian humanitarian organizations dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.” One of the many ways World Vision serves is through child sponsorships, which give a child a gift of hope and help restore their communities.
Established in 1977, World Vision has reached millions in several countries around the world regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. Not only do they work with children, but they also serve “earthquake and hurricane survivors, abandoned and exploited children, survivors of famine and civil war, refugees, […] and families in communities devastated by AIDS in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.” Maintaining offices around the world, World Vision’s “interdependent national offices are bound together by a Covenant of Partnership, a biblically based agreement that enables [them] to work together in a unified and complementary way as [they] walk alongside those [they] serve.” World Vision sustains itself with “more than 3 million donors, supporters, and volunteers; more than half a million child sponsors; thousands of churches; hundreds of corporations; and government agencies in the United States and around the world.”
