More than 1 in 4 New Zealand children are growing up in deprivation, where even basics most of us take for granted are hard to come by – essentials like bedding, a school uniform, closed-in shoes, a warm jacket to wear in winter, and money for school camps and trips. Through no fault of their own they miss out and are isolated from their friends.
For as little as $45 each month, that's $1.50 a day, you can make a lasting difference to one of these children. You’ll provide necessities to keep your sponsored child warm, happy and healthy. When you sponsor a child, you give them the opportunity not only to enjoy their childhood, but to contribute positively to our society as they grow up.
