Do they truly understand what you are doing? Are they grateful?
I recently heard Loureen, a sponsored child in Kenya, express what sponsorship did for her. I think it will make you even more glad to be a sponsor! - Milton Jones, CRF President
I came from the dustbin.
When I was first taken to the orphanage in 2002, I got my sponsor. You gave me a school uniform. You paid my school fees.
If it wasn’t for you, I don’t know where I would be now. I came from a poor family that never managed to take me to school, so I joined the street children. I picked food from the dustbin in order to have something to eat. I walked barefoot, with torn clothes. Nobody in my neighborhood would look at me when I passed near them.
When I was sponsored, my life changed from a street girl to a smart student. My dream is to do well in my studies until I make it into the university. After completing my studies, I pray that God will enable me to sponsor other children like how you have sponsored me.
May God bless you and guide you in everything you do. Sponsors, I appreciate your kindness. - Loureen Kwamboka, Kitale, Kenya
