Letters from sponsored children to sponsors are carefully written, then translated with extra care to make sure the meaning is transferred from the child’s native language to English. Because of that, sometimes it can take a while for mail to get from a sponsored child to their sponsor.
Kathy, FFP’s director of public relations, recently received a letter from Ruth, a girl in Haiti who she and her husband feel blessed to support.
In the letter, written in beautiful cursive French, Ruth talks about eating beets and fish, and wishes her sponsors a blessed Easter. She also includes a drawing of Easter eggs.
Through Food For The Poor’s Angels Of Hope child sponsorship program, 3,300 children in 115 orphanages receive support. The children in these Angels Of Hope-supported homes can count on getting a good education, nutritious meals, clean beds and the loving word of God. Plus they get lots of letters from their devoted sponsors.
