I have sponsored my two children from Brazil, Ingrid and Cleiton, for several years now, and we always dreamed of meeting each other personally. I was blessed to have that opportunity in the summer of 2008.
Although the children are from different families and eight hours apart, ChildFund made it a great experience. I was truly amazed by the overall experience.
I was encouraged as we went to the villages and saw what was being done with our sponsorship money. They really make a difference that impacts lives. The kids also had a day that they will never forget. We were able to exchange some gifts with one another, and I eventually gave them a scrapbook of the entire day.
We still write one another and I am very happy I made a decision to sponsor them, as they have touched my life. Beyond that, the places we stayed, the organizational leadership of Gary Duncan and the itinerary was top notch. I’d highly recommend their study tours to meet your child!
