The fact that there are countless millions of children the world over who require sponsorship just to be able to eat and have access to the bare necessities of life should be a great source of shame and sadness for everyone.
The fact that people like you are willing to show your generosity and compassion by doing what you can to help should be a source of pride for you and an example to us all.
We can, should, and must do better as humans.
In a world where we have so much plenty, such poverty is not only avoidable, it is criminal and callous in its very existence.
That said, a world that produces people like you who are willing to do more than your fair share to right some of those injustices and make a difference in a child’s life exemplifies all that’s right with humanity.
Fight back against the greed and apathy and make a difference in a child’s life when you choose to sponsor a child in Thailand. Here are just four ways that even a small contribution on your part can make a huge difference.
- Letting Them Know Someone Cares
One of the most important ways in which sponsoring a child in Thailand can make a huge difference is simply by letting that child know that someone cares. If that sounds basic, that’s because it is – and so it should be all the more viscerally upsetting and unacceptable to think about that child not getting the care and emotional support we all need.
In a world of more than seven billion people, it can be all too easy to feel insignificant, isolated, unwanted, and alone. On a psychological and emotional level, knowing that someone else cares for you can thus make all the difference in the world.
- Consistent Support
Anyone who has ever faced uncertainty regarding their living situation can imagine the anxiety a child who cannot support themselves must feel when confronted with an even more uncertain future. Children who require sponsorship often don’t know where their next meal will come from, or where they’ll be staying a few days or weeks from now. That is no way for a child to grow up and develop, and no way for any of us to live. Even in the smallest of amounts, your consistent support of a child may be one of the very few things on which they can depend.
- Covering Necessities
Sponsoring a child in Thailand can help provide them with clean water, food, shelter, and other basic necessities of life. These are things to which we are all entitled as human beings, and making sure that children have access to all these things should be a top priority for everyone.
- Further Support
If you feel a strong sense of connection with the child you are sponsoring, you may wish to support them even further. The best such programs allow for a wide range of interaction and assistance between donor and child.
Giving even just a little can make a huge difference in a child’s life today.
