I have just found out that the child I have sponsored in Africa for some years has died after being bitten by a snake.
I’m deeply shocked, but determined that I will continue my sponsorship with another child, and I would urge anyone who can afford to do so here in the developed world to do like wise. Sometimes it takes something like this to make you realise how fortunate you are in life.
Anyway I sponsor via Action Aid but there are many charities here in the UK & abroad that offer similar schemes. If you’ve ever considered it please do.
