During our last trip to Haiti in September we delivered gift bags that sponsors put together for the children they are sponsoring. The room was filled to capacity with all the students attending the Salvation Army School and some of their parents. They sat there patiently as we called out the names of the children whose sponsors had sent them a gift. As I looked out across the room their expression on their faces said, “PICK ME, CALL MY NAME”.
It was a priceless moment when the child who was receiving a package heard their name but it was a heart breaking moment for the other children who did not have their name called.
We have 83 children currently attending the school without a sponsor. Would you consider sponsoring a child? Maybe two? If you are already sponsoring a child will you tell your friends and family? You can find all the details on this website under sponsorship. It’s only $10 a month and the priceless gift of knowing you are making a difference in the life of a child.
