At ChildFund Australia, we’re for children. Our vision is a global community, free from poverty, where children are protected and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
We listen to children and work directly with them, their families and village leaders to help them become self-sufficient. By empowering children and their communities to voice their needs and put practical, sustainable programs in place, we can tackle the real issues causing poverty.
Over eight million children die every year from preventable diseases before reaching their fifth birthday. Diarrhoea is one of the biggest threats to toddlers.
This is such an enormous number, and to many people it can seem impossible to break the cycle of poverty. But by sponsoring a child you can make a difference – to the life of that child, and to your own family.
Louis’ mum tells us that sponsoring Praveen in India has opened up a world of opportunities for him, and opened her own son’s eyes to the world.
And James, who sponsors Viet in Vietnam, says: “I’m very proud to have a ‘little brother’ I can write to, share stories with, and support.”
You can brighten a child’s future – sponsor a child today.
