“I thought about our World Vision sponsored child, Mpho, from Lesotho in Africa. Because of our sponsorship, he was able to receive the medical attention he needed several years ago to cure a problem with one of his eyes. We have so many advantages in our country, which many of us take for granted. As Mpho’s sponsor, he has allowed us to share our blessings with him so he can go to school and live a healthy life, too, and I am grateful we are in a position to do so.”

"One of my favorite letters came from the mother of our sponsored child, Lillian, who is two years old. The gratitude of the mother touched me to the core. She had traced Lillian's little hand print on her letter. I kept that hand print out to see for a long time. As a mother I was deeply touched receiving this from the mother of a child I care so deeply about. I saw how our sponsorship allows Lillian to live with her mother. I can think of no greater gift than giving a child the gift of staying with his/her mother and giving a mother the gift of caring for her own child."
