Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.

About South America's Poor

The economic gap between the rich and poor in most of the countries of South America is wider than in most other continents.

  • The poorest of South America's poor live in peasant communities in remote mountain areas in Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador.
  • In the rural Andean region, three out of four people live below the poverty line.
  • Poverty in southern South America is greatest among indigenous people.
  • In many large South American cities, crude shacks and slums adjoin luxury apartments and skyscrapers.
