Merciful Hearts currently has 38 children and is continuously receiving more. As our number of children continues to grow, along with our desire to provide them with a better future, we have found it necessary to find sponsors for each child. The total cost of sponsoring a child is $140 per month, which covers the child’s most basic tangible needs. As the total cost may be more than what some people can afford, we provide the option of sponsoring a child in part or in full. We want to give you the opportunity to sponsor a child however you are able, starting at $35 a month. As a result, one child may have up to four sponsors. It is also our desire for each child to have a relationship with his/her sponsor(s). Once you become a sponsor, you will receive regular packets from your child, including items such as handwritten notes, art projects and updated photographs. We pray you will open up your heart and make a difference in a child’s life today.
WHAT DOES SPONSORSHIP PROVIDE? $140 per month per child pays for three meals a day, clothing, educational materials and other basic living expenses such as bedding, toiletries and medical attention. Child sponsorship funds are spent evenly among all children. However, sponsorships provide much more to a child. Having a sponsor means having someone in their lives who is looking out for them month after month, even from afar. Having a sponsor makes a child feel worthy, loved and respected. Merciful Hearts Sponsors often reap the spiritual benefits of watching a child grow not just physically, but mentally and spiritually as well.
