Editor’s note: Many of you followed along with me during my recent travels with Unbound to the Philippines. I was able to witness there firsthand the amazing work being done by Unbound. I also had the unbelievable joy of meeting my own sponsored child and her family. I now know through this experience not only the blessings of Unbound sponsorship in the lives of children, but also the impact that sponsorship can have on those of us who become involved in Unbound’s mission! We’re thrilled to again be partnering with our friends at Unbound to be a part of their service to families around the world. Each month, Unbound joins us at CatholicMom.com to offer you the chance to partner tangibly with them by prayerfully considering sponsoring a child or aging friend. Lisa Hendey
Kareem is an adorable six-year-old boy growing up in India. He aspires to become a doctor and his favorite subjects in school are science and mathematics. He also enjoys drawing and dancing. His most important job at home is to do his homework.
Kareem lives with his mom Sameena, dad Jahangir and younger sister, Nasreen. They all live together in a rented home with the basic amenities. Both of Kareem’s parents are hardworking and want to send their children to school.
Once Kareem is sponsored, he will begin to receive the tangible benefits such as education and nutrition. This will also allow 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.
