Welcome to Sponsorship Saturday, where, every Saturday, I hope to highlight one or more kids living in poverty and in need of sponsorship, in hopes of finding sponsors for them. However, for Sponsorship Saturday to accomplish it’s purpose, I’ll need your help!
Please share these posts so that many people can become aware of people living in poverty and hopefully take action!
And, of course, please keep the Sponsorship Saturday kids and their families in your prayers.
I’ll be highlighting kids from many different countries, registered with multiple sponsorship orginizations including Compassion International, World Vision, and Holt International.
Please note that it is my intention to both help the kids I spotlight, by spreading the word about their needs, and how others can help, and also, to honor the individuals I’m advocating for in my wording and the info I mention here. If you see anything that I’ve missed, or that I could do better to accomplish this goal, you are welcome to let me know in the comments.
This Saturday, I am highlighting two girls from Mongolia, who are registered with Holt international’s sponsorship program.
Meet sweet “Ike” here!
Ike (his name has been changed to protect his identity) is 4 years old, and lives in a care center in a Southeast Asian country.
Ike was entrusted by his biological mother to non-relatives when he was a few months old. However, his guardian was detained due to an illegal drug related case. There was no one able to care for him, so he lives in a Holt supported care center.
Ike has medical certificate which indicates he has Autism Spectrum Disorder, and it appears that he was nonverbal at the time his sponsorship page was written. Because he has some special needs, sponsorship is especially important to help provide him with resources to thrive!
You can sponsor Ike for $39 a month!
Here is the second kid I’m sharing with you today, “Hope”!
Hope (her name has been changed to protect her identity) is 12 years old, and lives in a care center in a Southeast Asian country.
Hope’s parents decided to temporarily place Hope and her two siblings in a Child Care Center that Holt partners with while the parents are in prison, since there are no relatives able to care for the kids.
Hopefully, sponsorship will allow Holt to eventually help the kids go back to their parents’ care. In the meantime, sponsorship will provide Hope with all she needs while she is living in the care center.
You can sponsor Hope for $39 a month!
I also want to share about “Summer”!
Summer (her name has been changed to protect her identity) is 12 years old, and lives with her family in a Southeast Asian country.
Summer’s family is low income, and they struggle to meet their childrens’ everyday needs. The amount they are earning is not enough to provide for school necessities.
Sponsorship will allow Holt’s partners to provide Summer and her family with what they need, including school support. Sponsorship will help the family to stay together and thrive! Family support helps to prevent orphans in the first place by providing families with material assistance so that families don’t feel like the only option is to put their children in orphanages.
You can sponsor Hope for $39 a month!
Since Holt may be a lesser known sponsorship organization, I’d like to give you a bit of information about Holt! This is from Holt’s about page: We are a Christian organization committed to a world where every child has a loving and secure home. We help strengthen vulnerable families, care for orphans, and find adoptive families for kids.
Sponsorship is a branch of family support for children living with their families, and orphan care for children living in orphanages or foster homes. Family support helps to prevent orphans in the first place by providing families with material assistance so that families don’t feel like the only option is to put their children in orphanages. This is so important!
Giving, praying, and sharing are three wonderful ways to help Ike, Hope, Summer, and other kids living in orphanages or poverty.
It’d be wonderful if you would consider sharing this post or sponsoring Ike, Hope, or Summer!
Of course, sponsorship is not for everyone, but that isn’t the only way to help. Maybe you could share? Maybe you could pray?
Thank you so much for reading!
