Nataly Landaverde is an Olympian. She represents El Salvador in the women’s 1500 meters track and field event in London. What most people do not know, is that Nataly Landaverde was once a child sponsored through World Vision.
What is Child Sponsorship? For about $1 a day, you’ll provide children in need with access to life-saving basics.
The Benefits of Child Sponsorship: The child will receive Clean water, Nutritious food, Healthcare, Education, and much more.
How It Works:
- Choose a girl or boy to sponsor. In 10 days you’ll receive your Welcome Kit with a photo, sponsorship DVD and more.
- In 6 to 12 weeks be looking in the mail for your first letter from your sponsored child.
- Sponsorship fosters sustainability. World Vision plans and works alongside community members to help build healthy communities for children.
I have been sponsoring a child through World Vision for several years now. It doesn’t take much, just a dollar a day. With one dollar a day, you a change a child’s life forever. One of my favorite things about sponsoring my child is writing letters. Several times a year I send letters/drawings, but the best part is receiving them. It is great to keep in touch with the child you sponsor. Not only are you helping them out with basic necessities, but you are building a relationship that will last a lifetime. Just like someone did for Nataly, you can help make a difference in a child’s life!
