...And imagine if they somehow changed your life forever, too.
That first letter Renee received after she started sponsoring Maureen in Mwala, Kenya, was the first time she really understood the difference she could make in a child’s life – not just with financial support, but through care and empowerment of another person.
“I didn’t know what to expect. But when I got her first letter, it was amazing. I couldn’t wait to respond; I just ran to my computer,” says Renee.
“I now hang that letter on my refrigerator because I love seeing it every time I open the fridge. I really enjoy being able to see someone grow who is now part of my family… who I never thought would be.”
When Renee made the decision to sponsor a child through World Vision’s Child Sponsorship programme, she had hoped it would bring positive changes for Maureen – but Renee had no idea just how much it would impact her life too.
