Child sponsor - Shemi


Shemi's sponsorship story

For Shemi and her children, sponsoring Vincent has brought so much joy. Her sponsorship began when she had her first son Adam and she realised other children wouldn't have all the wonderful experiences he would.

"I would say to someone who is thinking about sponsoring a child, go ahead and do it. It's the most life changing thing ever, it's absolutely brilliant."

What your sponsorship could do

For 14-year-old Isata, life changed the first time clean water flowed in her Sierra Leone village. She used to spend three hours a day fetching water for her family - from the same place where people bathed and washed their clothes. "I got sick when I drank the water and then had to stay in bed for a long time".

Everything changed for Isata when World Vision began to support her community through child sponsorships and helped restore a water point near her home. With clean water finally available nearby, for the first time she can simply learn and play.

"Before I became a sponsored child, I couldn't even write my name," says Isata. "Now I can write well."
