What Do We Do About George?

What Do We Do About George?

This is George.  He is 5 years old.

When I imagine a child I love sitting like this boy, with only a raw potato to eat provided by his teenage brother, my heart breaks.

In September, I spent time with George and his three brothers.  And I had to wait instead of help.  It about killed me.

But I know what your response is, because I have SEEN it, first hand–and I have seen it for more than a decade for many of you.

You HELP little boys like George.  You email…you call, you donate.  You reach out and ask me “What can I do?”  You become the engine that drives Village2Village Project forward in our rescue of children.  And for that, I am so very grateful.

Your giving provides milk for the baby of an HIV+ mom, an endoscopy for a child losing blood, extra casework support for a family in crisis, and staff training and education.  It helps to keep children in school when they lose a sponsor or there is a delay in sponsorship giving.  It means resources to take children into the program when they desperately need it.  It makes sure that George will eat in 2017.

As 2016 draws to a close, and you are considering your year-end giving, please help me reach out and say yes to other children like George—the hardest thing I have to say is no to a child who desperately needs help.  It’s so easy to change a life.
