Editor’s note: We’re thrilled to again be partnering with our friends at Unbound to be a part of their mission serving families around the world! Unbound has joined us as a “World View Wednesday” contributor. Each month, Unbound will be sharing a column to inform you about the lives of families around the world. We will also offer you the chance to partner tangibly with them by prayerfully considering sponsoring a child or aging friend. Lisa Hendey
Sheinamae, who likes to be called Namae, is a beautiful nine-year-old girl growing up in the Philippines. She is the school representative in singing and her favorite subject in school is Math. She helps her family at home by sweeping the yard.
Namae lives with six family members including her parents, two brothers and a sister. Namae’s family belongs to the local indigenous tribe in their village. Both the father and mother work to support the needs of the family, especially the education of their children. They all live in a house constructed of cement, a galvanized iron sheet roof, and they use firewood for cooking. Their only access to water is from a river close to their home.
By sponsoring Namae, she will begin to receive the tangible benefits such as education and nutrition. This will also provide the family to be fully integrated in a local caring community, with programs and services designed to improve their quality of life and empower them to break the cycle of poverty.
