Have you ever had a day where things just seem off? Maybe your hot water went out or your coffee creamer went bad. Imagine living in a country were no hot water was routine and clean water was a luxury. Imagine living on less than $1.25 a day. That’s the reality many of the children we serve in Uganda face on a daily basis. Now think about what made those off days for you better? A smiling face or extra friendly barista can make all the difference in how you see the world.
Child Advocacy operates in much the same way. As a child advocate you can completely change how a child sees and experiences the world by simply committing to sending them an encouraging note, telling them about yourself and taking the time to learn about them. You have the unique opportunity to be that shining light in an often dark world.
Think of how much brighter life might seem if a child received a weekly note telling them they’re being prayed for and thought of on a daily basis. Imagine how happy they would be knowing you’re telling your friends about them and even taking the time to occasionally send them a gift. Your love and time could literally change their lives. And, you might be surprised to realize just how blessed you feel to connect with your child. As you bless your child any problems you have will likely begin to shrink.
