CFCA was recommended to me by my mother, who had wonderful experiences with them, however I needed to do my own research before making a decision regarding which organizaion was best for our family to connect with. After MUCH research and talking with others, we joined CFCA almost 10 years ago! It has been such a blessing to our family to be able to help provide for the needs of others in a manner that's efficient, honest and trustworthy. We have been able to sponsor 2 children, one of which we've had since the beginning, so it's been AMAZING to watch him grow, as our family grows also, now with 2 children of our own. To learn of their struggling environments, and to hear how much they (sponsored children) appreciate simple things like medical treatment, school supplys, an education, etc, has been very humbling to us, and makes us realize how much we are needed. As Americans, it's so easy to take simple things like those for granted. Receiving letters and updated pictures of our sponsored children is wonderful and I believe whole heartedly in CFCA and their integrity. They've always been enourmously helpful and easy to work with. They enable people like you and I to get involved and be Jesus to those in need. Thank you CFCA for all that you do to help others!!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my own life. When helping others, you also get much in return.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
find a way to make it possible for donors to be able to send gifts/packages of any size (within reason), and to find a safe and trusted way to make sure they arrive. Also, would be GREAT to receive some kind of verification that things we send our sponsored friends are actually received...we never have, so we don't know if they've ever gotten things we've sent, so we don't send packages often anymore.
Donor & I sponsor 2 children through CFCA.
