You can personally sponsor a needy child
When they get fed, clothed, educated, and cared for in a loving environment, you experience the joy of sponsorship!
Millions of children in Asia, Africa and Latin America are destitute. Wars and natural disasters have added to the distress in some areas. Even many who live with their own parents go hungry, wear rags, and don't go to school because their parents are unable to find work and therefore can't pay local school fees. Many children wander the streets looking for scraps of food. Most suffer from malnutrition. Sometimes their fate is much worse. Many are abused. Some are kidnapped and used as slaves.
Thousands of needy children are cared for in children's homes operated by indigenous groups. Regular support from sponsors helps provide daily food, clothing, shelter, and Bible teaching by native workers.
Some needy children are assisted while they live with their parents or relatives. The aid sent by sponsors enables such children to have proper nutrition and to afford an education by buying school uniforms and books. This kindness usually results in the child and the whole family turning to Christ. Sometimes missionaries with big hearts and small budgets take needy children into their own homes and raise them as their own children.
By sending $25 or more per month, you can help one needy child. With your prayers, he or she will receive Christian care and discipling and may even grow up to be a missionary for our Lord.
Christian Aid will send you the name, photo and biographical sketch of the one assigned to you, as well as information about the indigenous ministry responsible. We will also send you updates on the mission with which your child receives care as they become available.
Your monthly gifts will be sent to the indigenous mission in charge of the one you sponsor. They will be combined with those of others to provide for the children within their ministry. Then, as you pray each day by name for the child you are sponsoring, you will have the deep satisfaction of knowing that your gifts help meet the needs of that precious child in an area where you probably could never go as a foreign missionary.
Please note that Christian Aid is not able to send specific child information from ministries in the Middle East and China. Vibrant and effective ministries among children are indeed taking place in these regions, but ongoing security issues restrict communications and information gathering vital to maintaining a specific child sponsorship program.
If you wish to sponsor a child in a particular region of the world, please note that in the COMMENT box in the basket. We will do our best to oblige but please remember that there are regions where we cannot provide individual child information for security reasons, and there are regions that we do not have active child sponsorships at this time.
