Manuel has had a tough life. Tougher than most of us will ever know. He has suffered the loss of his parents and another important caregiver and been malnourished and dressed in rags that were literally falling off him.
He was first sponsored 18 months ago after we had shown a photo of him in his only clothes…..full of holes. He has had new clothes, food and a football. Since his mum died, Levison organised for Manuel to live with his aunt and uncle and two cousins. A sponsor kindly came forward to sponsor Manuel’s cousin, Roda. So the family now has regular food going into their home as well as the children being gifted blankets and clothes and books etc.
Manuel’s sponsor gave some money to buy fertiliser for the uncle’s small piece of land. The photos are of Manuel & his uncle, taken yesterday, receiving the fertiliser. Compare these with the original photo of Manuel, and the one with his cousins when he had first moved in with them after his mum had died. Just look at the difference….Manuel looks happy and healthy and his smile is just amazing to see. This is the difference having a sponsor can make. Over 80 of the most vulnerable children are sponsored now. Let’s make things better for more.
Can you be a sponsor to a child like Manuel? A smile like that is all the confirmation you need that you can make a difference to a child by becoming their sponsor. We always say it’s about teamwork….we can’t help these orphans and vulnerable children without you. We need you. Children like Manuel need you. Sponsoring a child like Manuel might be one of the most important things you ever do. It will be the greatest gift you can give one of these children. Thanks to his sponsor, Manuel will now have opportunities open to him that he would have only been able to dream about. Together we can help these children realise their dreams. Together we can continue Changing Lives Malawi. It’s only £25 per month to sponsor a child. Please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for reading, Sarah x
