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
Danna, is a beautiful three-year-old girl growing up in the Ecuador. She attends a program that will help her develop her skills before starting school. She enjoys coloring and cutting paper. She helps her family at home by picking up her toys.
Danna lives with her two sisters and her parents. They live in a humble dwelling made of cane, the roof is made of zinc, and the floor is dirt. They do have electricity, a gas stove for cooking, and they have potable water. Her mom stays home to take care of the household while her father looks for work every day to bring food for his family.
By sponsoring Danna, 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.
