Christian Children's Fund
What began as a missionary's determination to help children devastated by war more than 60 years ago has evolved into a community of caring sponsors reaching out to needy children and their families around the world. Christian Children's Fund currently assists more that 2.5 million children in over 30 countries.
Our generous donors provide children access to safe water, nutritious food, medical care and an education. But they share an even greater gift. Our sponsors give their children hope for a better future and the knowledge that someone... however far away...cares about them. This gift is priceless.
Christian Children's Fund's pioneer program that measures the impact of our services on every sponsored child also provides assurance that our sponsors are indeed saving children's lives.
