Hi, I’m Hazeljoy  and I’m 9 years old. I live with my parents and older brother who has special needs. I love dancing and singing. My parents have limited income and are struggling to pay for my brother’s therapy as well as my education.

Your sponsorship will help secure education, and provide medical and dental care and nutritional support to a child like Hazeljoy.

Many sponsor children in the Philippines belong to extremely poor families, many of whom have moved to Manila from rural areas seeking a better life. Sponsorship helps ensure their basic needs are met, particularly in the areas of education, health and nutrition. It also provides support for their families to set up sustainable livelihoods through micro-enterprise programs.

How Sponsorship Works

Your monthly support of $43 will help fund projects specific to the needs
of the child’s community, including things such as quality education, food
and nutrition and health. It may also fund projects specific to the needs of the
child’s community such as schools or hospitals.

When you support our child sponsorship program for teenage mothers,
your monthly gift of $166 is directed towards a pregnancy crisis centre
which offers temporary shelter and pre-and post-natal care for pregnant teenagers.
It also runs vocational skills training to provide the girls with a means
to support themselves and their babies after they leave the centre.

Approximately 75% of funds raised go to partner programs that directly benefit vulnerable children and their communities. This includes the provision expertise to ensure that the funds are providing maximum benefits to their intended beneficiaries. 

We encourage our sponsors to set up automatic credit card or bank account deductions, as they are easy and reliable. You can also pay by cheque or credit card. 

Yes, the children love to hear from their sponsors in Australia because it reminds them that someone loves and cares for them. You can write using the blank letter template included with each letter from your sponsor child, or alternatively you can forward the text of your letter to sponsorships@worldshare.org.au.
