Health, wealth and happiness are what we all aim for in our lives. Unfortunately, many of us are lucky if we achieve one or two out of the three. Worse still, there are many more people around the world who have little chance of achieving any, but there are some things we can do to change this.


One of the things we can do is sponsor a child who is poor or hungry. Sponsoring a child helps to break the cycle of poverty, despair and hopelessness they and many other children in the Third World face today. If just one person decides to help another person, he or she can make a world of difference. For as little as 16 a month (thats 50p a day) we can give a child a future full of hope. This money helps provide food, clean water, medical care and education for boys and girls who really need it.


Investing in a childs life in this way will not only help the child, but also the family and the community in which they live. Its obvious that clean water, decent healthcare and educational opportunities will benefit everyone in the area.

Child sponsorship is different from other kinds of aid programmes because it focuses on the personal relationship between the giver and the receiver. They exchange letters, gifts, photos and more. The journey to see your adopted child is certainly worth the effort.


World poverty and hunger are huge problems that will not go away by themselves. Many things will have to happen to make any changes, but I believe that if each of us starts now by doing something to help, then these changes will start to take place. Sponsoring a child is an easy and cheap way for each of us to make a difference in the life of a poor and hungry child.
