Can you eat on only $32 a month? "Impossible," you say? It may not be possible for you, but let me tell you about a some people for whom it is possible. The children that you can sponsor at Compassion is who they are.
This is not about what just over $1 a day gets you. It's about what it can get a child in need.
Health care and supplemental nutrition, if necessary
Church-sponsored activities that build social skills
Most important of all, the opportunity to hear the gospel, receive Christ, and grow in faith.
Disclosure: We sponsor a child, but receive no compensation for people signing up or anything of the sort. As my wife and I prayed about this before sponsoring a child she told me of her time in Nicaragua. She spent two weeks there while finishing her Masters degree living among the people. What really hit her when she got home was the first time she went to the grocery store. She was simply overwhelmed by the abundance of food we have in this country. She told some touching stories about her time there. That was certainly some food for thought for us.
If you're skeptical of this organization you can check them out on Charity Navigator. In the grand scheme of things it's not much money. In most places it's probably cheaper than cable/satellite TV. My intention is not to make you feel guilty (maybe convicted), but do pray and consider if God would have you sponsor a child.
