If a child is thriving, everyone’s thriving.
That’s why sponsorship matters so much to me! When you sponsor a child through World Vision, you're not only personally showing God’s love to a child in need, you’re also investing in a proven way to help that child and their community stand tall, free from poverty.
Here's my story...
As a teenager in the 1980's I watched a documentary about the Romanian orphanage crisis and was broken. I knew I wanted to help children living in the poorest and most difficult situations of the world. Fast forward ten years to a Sunday morning when a couple came to our church to speak about an organization that did just that-- and would allow me to stand in the gap for a child in desperate need. Shortly thereafter, my husband and I sponsored our first child, and the rest is history! In 2009 I became a volunteer child ambassador so that I could find sponsors for more and more children. It has been one of the best ways to have spent the past 12 years, and I am excited to have you join with me in it!
