I was always skeptical about charities that said they would give you a picture of the child you could sponsor. I thought to myself "Oh sure, this child's photo is probably in every city." But that's so not true with CFCA! I became a believer of the power of the one-on-one match when I started getting letters and pictures from my boy in the Merida, Mexico project. But the real impact that this most wonderful organization has on changing the world one person at a time came totally to light to me when I went on a Mission Awareness trip to Merida. I got to experience first hand what life changing work this organization is doing. I got to hug my little boy and his whole family. I cried with his mother as she told me what a difference my sponsorship has made in their lives. I am no longer a skeptic but a whole-hearted believer!! The idea of each of us lighting one little candle to make this world a brighter place is so true with this program - my hope is that thousand more will light a candle too!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The mission trip I took to Merida, Mexico project. I saw first hand the changes to the lives of the whole family where a sponsored person lives!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Work even harder to get their name and the good work they do known to all!
Donor & I sponsor a child through CFCA.
