My son is sponsoring a child in Bangladesh through DCI’s Sun Child Program since 2005. Abid likes the program, especially the communication with his sponsored friend. Abid saves money in his piggy bank for his sponsored child and always waits for the letter and picture of his sponsored friend. This is like a pen pal relationship and is moving towards a lifelong friendship for him. Child sponsorship is not just about giving some money. I think it is easy to give money. What matters is the involvement and the relationship. Giving your time for underprivileged and unfortunate people is more difficult than simply giving away your money.
