Thank you so much for deciding to sponsor with us.

Although Lara now has a sponsor, there are many other children in poverty who are in similar situations. We're delighted to introduce you to another child waiting for a sponsor below. We hope you'll feel able to reach out to them and bring them real hope and lasting change today. Alternatively click here to search for a different child waiting for a sponsor.
