Yes I want to enjoy the thrill of changing Orphan children life
You, too, can help an orphaned or abandoned child by becoming part of
our Lifeline Welfare Organization. Here’s how:
- Sponsor a child and watch him or her grow as you receive progress reports.
- Give time as a volunteer.
- Provide needed items.
- Contribute financially.
- Leave a legacy by remembering Lifeline children in your will or trust.
- Pray for our children.
As a family member, you’ll be glad to know that we’re careful with contributions. We make sure that at least 90% of all donations go to children’s programs and only 10% is used for Administration.
A Love Commitment
People such as you choose to sponsor a child because of a love and a desire to save the lives of orphaned or abandoned children. Tragic events have brought these special children to Lifeline. God is using caring people to save their lives. Your love commitment of monthly sponsorship will ensure that a child has the security of a home, a loving family and a hope for their future.
How Does My Sponsorship Benefit My Child?
The most important benefits your sponsor- ship will create are a loving family and a hope for the future for these special children. Your sponsorship ensures that they have a family and a home to call their own. Your sponsor- ship will underwrite your child’s monthly expenses such as housing, medical, clothing and education.
Our program is based on the family model. Ten to twelve children live in each house such as this family in the Dominican Republic. Christian house parents provide the love, care and disci- pline the children need to grow into healthy, happy, young adults.
Your Sponsorship Pledge
When you become a sponsor, you will be pledging a minimum monthly donation of $30 a month. Some sponsors pledge $60, $90 or more. We sincerely endeavor to accommodate everyone’s ability and desire to help the children. The monthly cost of supporting a child in one of our children’s villages averages about $250 a month. Multiple sponsorship donations are combined and then allocated to the budget of the appropriate children’s village. We do not view your pledge as a bill that must be paid, but as a voluntary gift of love. We understand that you will give as long as you are able to do so.
As a service to our sponsors, we send a quarterly report of their pledge donations. This is not a bill. It is our intent to give you, our sponsors, an accurate accounting of your financial support in order to help you maintain your sponsorship pledge.
Updates and Letters
Sponsors typically receive two updated progress reports about their child each year from ICC’s sponsorship department. In most cases, we are able to include a current photo with each update. In addition the children will
ICC has established a gift fund for each children’s village. We encourage our sponsors to contribute to these gift funds, as they deem appropriate. Our campus administrators purchase individual gifts for the children for birth- days and Christmas from these gift funds.
Advocates for Orphans
Once you have begun your sponsorship, we hope you will be excited to share your experience with friends, family and work associates. ICC has developed several ways — videos, printed materials and presentations — to help you share your enthusiasm and help ICC find more sponsors for the children. Please con- tact our development department for more information.
Home is where the heart is. What child doesn’t deserve a loving and happy home of his own? Your sponsorship helps provide this ideal setting for a needy child.
often send you handmade cards or pictures for special occasions such as Christmas, Mother’s and Father’s Days.
We encourage you to communicate with your child through cards and letters. We make every effort to encourage the children to respond to your letters as well. Not every sponsor chooses to correspond with his or her child and we understand that also.
If you know of someone who speaks your child’s language and could assist you in translating let- ters to and from your child, it will help your communication be more meaningful and will save time for ICC’s staff. However, if this is not possible, ICC will translate letters for you upon request. When writing to your child, keep in mind that English is the second language for the staff members at our children’s villages, so please be brief and use simple English.
ICC does not encourage our sponsors to send personal gifts. There are several reasons for this policy. 1) We need to make sure that each child is treated equitably, 2) Many gift pack- ages are opened and stolen in country before
