We are waiting for a follow up on Jonel’s condition. We will keep you updated!

Aviann has been contributing to the Emergency Medical Fund which covers all medical related costs for our sponsor children in the Philippines.

With your contribution, you are taking an active role in making sure no child is denied access to medical care due to lack of financial resources.  Thank you for making Jonel and the other children in our sponsorship program feel valued and loved.
