If you are interested to become the direct sponsor of a child, all the funds received will be fully catering the child’s most basic needs i.e. food, clothing, medical care/hygiene and school materials. The child sponsorship program ideally asks for a monthly contribution of $30 (£15/€27.50). All children under the programme will correspond with their foster parents every two/three months. However, the contribution is to the discretion and the possibility of the sponsor.
Personal experience sharing from Ms Jinnie Lim, from Singapore. Jinnie became a sponsor in 2009.
"Peaceful Children's Home" is a place where happiness can be found in abundance, but do you know that this happiness actually makes my heart ache so much? When I thought that life had not been fair to me, God allowed me to meet these 'Angels' who soon became part of my life journey.
Looking at them made me ask why these children have to go through so much, just as a child
When they have to use lit candle to study in the dimly lit dormitory room
When the 13, 14 year agers tell me their favorite food is Hamburger
When I expected something more.
When they tell me they want to be doctors and lawyers so that they can help their people, their country.
- Hard their life journey may be; they never fail to keep my heart warm Seeing their smiles, no matter how difficult things may be Witnessing their love, for their little brothers and sisters at the Home Hearing them say "see you again" sincerely at every departure, even though that 'again' may not come Feeling their appreciation, no matter how small the gift they received is Watching them pick themselves up, despite falls in the course of chasing their dreams”
