Sponsor a deaf Child

Deaf children living in poverty conditions are smart, fun, talented, full of life, and have dreams for their future, just like any children! The only thing deaf children cannot do that hearing children are capable of doing is…hear. This simple difference, especially in countries that don’t understand causes of deafness, can result in these deaf children being outcast and isolated. Your $38 monthly sponsorship will give a deaf child hope by giving them food, clothing, shelter, and an education. For these children to know someone cares for them and is praying for them is such an encouragement. Below are deaf children that are available for sponsorship.
