Sponsor a child for Christmas
Help a child in need this Christmas, give a gift that lasts a lifetime
Every child is precious and brimming with potential. But too many are suffering.
This Christmas, you can transform a child's life by giving the gift of sponsorship.
No child should go hungry, sleep without a roof over their head, or drink dirty water. We believe all children are a gift and deserve to be safe, cared for, and go to school. That's why we work tirelessly around the world to bring this vision to life. So far we've impacted the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty.
When you sponsor a child for £26 a month, you help their family and other vulnerable children live in a healthier, safer community.
When you sponsor a child, you'll change their life - and yours too. You'll get letters and photos from your child and see the transformation in their community. By becoming part of your sponsored child's life, you'll experience first-hand the joy of watching them grow and reach their true potential - thanks to you.
Experience this life-changing journey and sponsor a child today.

Sponsoring a child changes two lives - the child's and yours
Meet our sponsors - see how child sponsorship has changed the lives of long-time sponsors Harriet and Shemi, and actor Amanda Redman.
Actor and ambassador Amanda Redman began sponsoring with World Vision in 1997 when her daughter Emily was 9. Emily and their sponsored child Diaw developed an incredible bond as they both grew older.
Shemi and her family have sponsored two children over the course of 14 years. Her and her children have loved receiving letters and finding out about the lives of Racheal and Vincent as they grew up.
How sponsorship works
When you sponsor a child, you'll be their only sponsor. You'll get to know each other through letters and you'll receive drawings, videos, and regular updates about their progress and the work in the community. You'll be giving children and their communities life-changing basics like nutritious food, clean water, healthcare and education. For just £26 a month, you're giving the gift that lasts a lifetime - for your sponsored child, and for you.
You'll provide access to safe water through well-drilling, pumps, and training in hygiene and sanitation decreases child mortality and frees up time for education instead of water collection.
World Vision goes beyond food distribution but also focuses on creating sustainable food supplies through agricultural programmes and nutritional training. Healthy children have more energy for life.
Your sponsorship provides access to things like medical clinics, vaccinations, training in disease prevention and other healthcare programmes.
Books, uniforms, classroom repairs, and training for teachers and parents provide your sponsored child with opportunities for the future.
