Children are among the most needy and vulnerable people on the planet. Many children and their families are facing such tremendous challenges that they desparately need people to care and provide help. One of the ways that help for children and families is provided is through child sponsorship. Hidden Children seeks to highlight organizations that are effectively helping children through child sponsorship.
Christian Foundation for Children and Aging (CFCA)
For over 30 years, Christian Foundation for Children and Aging (CFCA) has been helping children and families in over 20 countries. Currently there are over 250,000 sponsors who are supporting more than 300,000 children, youth and senior people throughout the world.
When a sponsor commits to sponsoring a child, youth or aging friend for $30 a month through our Hope for a Family sponsorship program, it impacts the entire family. Their approach to sponsorship provides basic necessities like food, education, clothing and access to medical care.
In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.
Cultural customs and traditional practices must not take precedence over the biblical guidelines for human relationships. Our heavenly Father declares the value and dignity of human life. Adults and children are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27, Psalm 139). God’s Word must have the final authority in regulating compassionate treatment of every human being, including children.
Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects your child with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program that provides:
- Food and clean water
- Medical care
- Educational opportunities
- Important life-skills training
- Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God.
When you sponsor a child, you’ll receive your child’s photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 15 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 will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.
For about $1 a day, you’ll provide children in need with access to life-saving basics like:
- Clean water
- Nutritious food
- And more!
Caribou Clean Water Initiative
Having access to clean water is increasingly a complex and important issue. The Caribou Clean Water Initiative is a movement that began with individuals in the Greater Yellowstone Region of the US, but it now includes many concerned individuals and groups both nationally and internationally. The Clean Water Initiative is committed to connecting individuals and organizations through partnerships that will help provide clean water to all people.
