Sometimes it is easy to take all of the great things in our life for granted. While we are caught up in the pursuit of the newest mobile phones or high-tech gadgets, it is easy to overlook the fact that many people in the world are living in poverty and struggling with the most basic of living needs, like food, shelter and clean drinking water.
No matter how difficult things in your life might seem, there is no doubt that there are many people who have a much harder life. Their worries are not about whether they will get to take a holiday with their friends or attend university at the school of their choice. They are more concerned with where their next meal is going to come from or when they will have access to clean drinking water. These are two completely different world views. Things that you view as being mere conveniences are life changing blessings to others. If you are ready to make a key change, getting involved with Childfund is a life altering action you can take today.
If you are ready to help a child or a community with a desperate need, there are many ways that you can get involved in the movement. One way is through sponsoring a child. Sponsoring a child directly helps the child that you choose to sponsor. These children are all living below the poverty line, and direct sponsorship helps assure that this child and his or her family has a shelter, food and clean water. If you cannot directly sponsor a child, other donation options are available for you to contribute to the betterment of poor communities in Sri Lanka, Kenya, Timor-Leste, Vietnam and Zambia. To make contributing to this cause easier, you are urged to set up automated monthly payments that deduct the cost of sponsorship directly from your savings or checking account, credit card or debit card. Automatic donations assure that the child you sponsor receives the funds he or she needs to live a better, healthier and more productive life. If you have the financial ability to sponsor more than one child, you are welcome to sponsor as many children as you want.
Help End Poverty
No matter what you are able to give, your donation directly benefits children and communities that need the most help. When you sponsor a child, you are helping to assure that he or she has a healthier and brighter future. You are bringing clean drinking water to villages that otherwise have to haul unclean water from the crocodile infested rivers, putting their people in danger every time they go near the water. If you are able to look past your personal needs, you will find that what you pay for a cup of coffee every day can significantly change the course of life for a child and a village. When you help others, you are helping yourself and all of humanity. When everyone does something to help someone else, soon the world becomes a better place for everyone.
