Sponsorship Program





The Sponsorship program has always been an important OS program that brings assistance directly to families and elders and also promotes inter-cultural understanding and friendship. Both families and sponsors tell us frequently how much it means to them. Both seem to gain equal benefits from the program. There are about 800 sponsors in the program at this time and about 1000 children and elders on the waiting list hoping for a sponsor. The children and elders on the program have urgent needs for warm clothing, blankets, shoes, food and other basic needs.
