The power of a letter

Bringing comfort into a child’s situation.

In response to the poverty you see in the world, you feel a little weaker each time you see the despair.

A child walks through rubble left behind after flooding at her house.  The brick house has a gigantic hole in the side of it.

Your heart is a little heavier with the next bad news story or the look of loss and defeat in the eyes of the child living amongst rubble on the news.

Can you touch this hopelessness? Reach out and interact to bring any relief at all?

Through sponsoring a child with us you really are. You’re lifting a child from poverty, reigniting hope in their heart.

As well as this financial help, look how your letter can light up a bare room.
