Thank you


More Important Than Ever


Thank you for your loving care for children during this global pandemic. We are conscious that now, more than ever, it’s important for us to stay connected and for you to know what’s happening with the Child Partner you support.

We hope this page will answer some of your questions and keep you informed about how COVID-19 is affecting communities and Child Partners, and how your Sponsorship is providing vital support as the impact spreads around the world. We are working closely with our local Christian Partners to monitor and respond to the situation in each community.

I would like to request my Australian friends to pray to God for the world’s people, [follow] the health-related instructions and extend your helping hands.

The study shows clear examples of how COVID-19 is affecting the world’s most vulnerable – children. COVID has made life harder for children in poverty and experts suggest its impact is going to be felt for years to come.
