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...
SInce I was a child, my mother had us sponsoring children through World Vision. My dad had survived World War II in Italy later taking refuge in America. What he lived through as a boy was traumatic. My grandmother told me those stories. I was greatly affected by the Vietnam War and we actually sponsored a child from there during that time. The Ethiopian famine in the 80's tore my heart apart and I knew I needed to always be a part of change for children in such a difficult world. Poverty exists because of so many different reasons...Natural, political, racial, genocide and so many other injustices...So I had to continue in my life sponsoring children and World Vision was the gateway to bringing hope. My three children grew up each with a children to help, pray for and write to and get to know. It enriched their hearts to give and as adults they are generous. My son even met one of his sponsored boys in Swaziland. He was deeply impacted and his heart grew in amazing ways to help others.
I am here to stand in the gap between hopeless children and families and you who have a hole to fill in your heart that when you sponsor fills that hole, and will bring you the most joy as it does to me every time a child is connected with hope.
I've seen this great work in person many times from Africa to Asia and to the Americas..Clean water, education available to all, thriving businesses, healthcare, plentiful farms...Most of all...proud, happy people where hopelessness is replaced by hope...
