Here is a charity I have volunteered for and sponsored five children with.
One day when I have more money I will support another child again. It broke my heart to have to give them up but we had our own child and hadn’t enough money to support others 😦
Be very clear that the money you give does not just go to one child and exclude the others. It goes to the whole village, or area, to help them improve their whole lives. I will never forget one little boy writing to me full of excitement because his village had new, hygienic toilets built.
