Children needing a sponsor family ...

I wanted to introduce a few more of the children that are attending "Trees of Glory" care-point in Ethiopia.  Many of these kids are orphans, and are living with a relative or neighbor that can barely provide for them.  Many of the guardians have had to make the difficult decision to "sell" a child as an indentured servant to local livestock owners, to work as a herder, night and day.  It may be the only choice they have so that other children in their home can be fed. 

At "Trees of Glory" the government has actually intervened on behalf of the kids, and is requiring the guardian or family member to bring the child to the care-point so that basic necessities (food, clothing, medical care) can be provided.  Children's Hopechest has partnered with this care-point to provide those basic necessities, along with education and Christian discipleship, through a child sponsor program.

Each one of the kids pictured below is still waiting to be matched with a sponsor family.  Please contact me at kjwistrom@yahoo.com if you are interested in committing to $34 per month and making a life long impact for one child.  Not only will you provide for their basic needs, education and discipleship, but you can email letters and build a long-term relationship. 

I will be in Ethiopia in November to personally meet each and every one of these kids, and I can deliver a letter and photos from each sponsor family.  30 of the kids at "Trees of Glory" have already been matched with a sponsor, but we have 54 kids still waiting.  Please contact me at kjwistrom@yahoo.com
