Yedidja Child Sponsorship – $65 / month

Categories: Current Projects

For children who have lost a parent, every day can be filled with fear and uncertainty. You can help provide for a child in our orphanage — not only for today, but also for tomorrow — with your sponsorship that provides resources such as food, clothing, school fees and supplies and also all of their medical needs as they arise. We currently have 30 children living at our orphanage and the $65 monthly sponsorship fee makes their life at Yedidja possible. The security that is provided for these children through this sponsorship helps alleviate some of the fear and uncertainty they have experienced and reassures them that their needs will be cared for. For our children living at the orphanage, this sponsorship helps pay for all of their needs as well as the personnel who take care of them.
