This is Alexander and today is his 6th birthday. His expression looks as though he’s wondering what sort of mischief he can get into.
Alexander lives with his mother, father and 3 siblings. His favorite activity is soccer and he’s doing well in kindergarten.
Most adults in Alexander’s community work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $15 per month. Alexander’s sponsorship allows him to receive Bible teaching, health screening, health education, school fees, educational materials, handiwork skills training and field trips. His parents receive child care education and counseling.
If you would be interested in sponsoring Alexander through Compassion International, please send me an e-mail at email@example.com. I will have his packet for about the next three weeks.
This beautiful child is Laxmi and she is eight years old and lives in East India. She lives with her father, mother and one sibling. At home she cares for animals and cleans. Laxmi enjoys reading and playing group games and she is doing well at school. Her birthday is June 17, 2004. I love how bright and cheery her photo is!
Half the adults in Laxmi’s area are unemployed. The average income for those who work is $22 per month. The community needs improved sanitation, roads, employment opportunities and alcohol abuse prevention programs. Common health problems in the area include malaria, diarrhea, jaundice and fevers.
Laxmi’s sponsorship allows her to receive Bible teaching, health checkups, vaccinations, outdoor games, hygiene education, picnics, special celebrations, community service opportunities, educational materials and skills development programs. Laxmi’s parents receive awareness programs on education, HIV/AIDS, hygiene and alcohol abuse prevention.
If you would be interested in sponsoring Laxmi through Compassion International, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will have her packet for about the next three weeks.
