Child Sponsorship Program
We know that every child has more than just physical needs. They also have emotional needs which will deeply impact the rest of their lives. Children living in an orphanage or broken home can feel alone in a crowd. As much as we would like to meet all of their emotional needs, our staff simply cannot be everything and everyone to them. Their history of neglect and emotional abandonment means that in reality they need all of us to make them feel loved and whole. We would like to give our Child Sponsorship Program a big boost by letting you know how much you can help a child who has emotional needs. Correspondence with and care for one of the children in the Bread of Life Orphanage or one of our Feeding Centers helps that boy or girl see and feel the human love behind the material support that they are receiving. There is an empty place in a child’s heart that only you can fill. In the years that this program has been running, we have many times seen the positive effect on the sponsored children. More than this, we have heard from many of those who sponsor a child how their own lives were impacted and their heart was blessed. Here is what one of our child sponsors had to say about her experience.
My name is Anita Gloege. I am 72 years old and attend a church in Kermit Texas. A few years ago when a couple from Bread of Life visited our church, my heart was touched hearing about their mission to the poor in Romania. When I asked to help by becoming a child sponsor they matched me with a young girl in the Orphanage named Cristina. I sponsor her with a monthly donation and I have occasionally sent a little extra money for the staff to buy some small things to cheer her spirits and make her feel loved and special. I also send her letters and cards. I treasure each reply from her and the artwork she draws for me. I keep these pictures along with her photo on my refrigerator so I can see them as I go about my day, Cristina is a real part of my life and I have come to love her as my grandchild.
I am so blessed that God has brought Cristina into my life. She has given me so much to look forward to. I love her smile and the light I see in her eyes now! It fills my heart with unspeakable joy! I cannot thank God enough for using me to bless a precious child in need! I pray that others will also have the blessing and joy of helping with God’s work at Bread of Life. I want to thank the staff for their love and dedication to the needy of Romania.
