My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for ChildFund International, Richmond, VA, USA
I am very proud of ChildFund’s work to help communities break the cycle of extreme poverty, enabling their children to not only survive, but thrive and become contributing members of society.
I witnessed a beautiful example of this during a visit to Ecuador this spring. We toured a village that, years before, had been in dire straits, with malnourished babies and children neglected while parents left in search of food and water. The circumstance of this village was a heartbreaking, and some might think, hopeless situation. As we toured the school, the reservoir, the irrigation system and even some homes, it seemed each person, young and old, was anxious to share his personal success story.
One of the village elders summed it up best in an emotional thank you to ChildFund and its donors. “You made us whole. We can now take care of ourselves and our families. We do not need you anymore because we are a strong village. Now you can leave us to help other villages like you helped ours. We are so thankful”.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Africa, India, the Philippines, Ecuador and our own country.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
increase our fundraising capacity so we could help more families. The need is so great.
