What a Child Receives Before Sponsorship
There is a waiting period for children to be sponsored and varies from child to child. And this period can be a long time to continue living in desperate poverty. Children can be malnourished to the point of stunted growth or cognitive development problems and they need urgent nutrition and medical care.
We can’t register a child and then tell him or her that he or she will have to wait to be sponsored to begin receiving help. That’s why even unsponsored children receive things like food, school tuition assistance, counseling and spiritual guidance, and hope-filled encouragement from the moment they are registered and even while they wait to be sponsored.
