Christopher Redner is CEO of Children In Need and an award-winning producer and journalist. He has visited dozens of child sponsorship projects around the world. He's seen the transformation that child sponsorship can facilitate.
"I've met thousands of children whose lives were better because they had child sponsors," Redner says. "These children received life-saving aid, education, skills training and so much more. But sponsorship is more than just giving physical aid. When a child discovers she has a sponsor from another country, it sends her a message that she is important.
"I've visited with so many children who had saved the cards and letters they have received from their sponsors. Many of those children told me they often pray for their sponsors and thank God for the blessings their families have received because they are sponsored."
Redner has encouraged thousands of people to sponsor children through concert tours, events, media interviews and the Children In Need Reports.
"You can change a child's life today by sponsoring a child through Compassion or World Vision." Redner says. "World Vision and Compassion are excellent charities with good reputations for providing excellent care. I sponsor children through both organizations. I've seen their child sponsorship programs at work and I can recommend them wholeheartedly."
Child sponsorship allows you to connect with a specific child in need and make a profound difference in that child's life, family and community. Your sponsored child will know your name, write to you and receive benefits like clean water, nutritious food, healthcare and educational opportunities. Sponsor a child through World Vision or Compassion.
