Hope's killer


Poverty wages war across the globe. Scarcity. Hardship. Extreme need. It has the power to kill hope … and claims generation after generation as its victims.

This is every day, real life for Heunice and her family. It’s the fight they face. It’s a fight she can’t win alone …

But all it takes is ONE

Heunice is just one face hidden beneath the statistics of global poverty.

But all it takes is one. One Heunice and one child sponsor … to break the cycle of poverty and change a future!

Child sponsorship is …

To boys and girls living in extreme poverty, like Heunice, child sponsorship is:

  • An answered prayer.
  • A promise fulfilled.


Indescribable Joy

Child sponsorship changed everything for Heunice.

It showed her she’s cared for. Valued. Loved. Treasured. And that her life matters!

A New Future

While Heunice’s living situation may not change today. A new tomorrow is within her reach. Sponsorship gave her a future!
