Christmas of Firsts
This Christmas, you can empower a child and their community to break free from poverty, for good.
As another year of uncertainty comes to a close, children in the most vulnerable places face more risk now more than ever.
This Christmas, you could give a child and their community the gift of hope for a brighter future.
Imagine if this Christmas, you could help a girl get water without fearing for her safety for the first time or empower a family eat until they are full.
The global crises of the past year have left even more children and their families in extreme need.
Imagine if you could help a child end 2022 with hope for the first time.
Make this Christmas count
For every child you help this Christmas, 4 more children benefit too.
Together, we can make a 'first' possible for you and a vulnerable child: The first time a family gets clean water. The first time a hungry child receives a full meal.
Sponsoring a child this Christmas could be the start of a new year of firsts – for both sponsors and vulnerable children.
Children need your help in some of the world’s toughest places. What if 2022 ended with a child feeling safe, maybe for the first time?
Make this a Christmas of Firsts.
Become a child sponsor this Christmas
Note: You will be redirected to your country's support office to complete the sponsorship process.
