Child Sponsorship Stories

"The child sponsorship programme is still incredibly special but I think this approach of them choosing us, is very personal. I was very touched when he introduced himself and told me what he likes. It was as if he has already touched my life,” shared Felicia Chin, Mediacorp artiste, World Vision Goodwill Ambassador and a #chosen sponsor. 

When Thu Ha first saw a picture of her new sponsored child Bably, she burst into tears. “I don’t know why I started crying, maybe it was because she looked so innocent and beautiful in the photo, it’s like seeing your own child, I felt extremely proud to be chosen by Bably.”

"I watched kids scan through every photo twice before making a selection and then hold that photo close to their hearts. Some kids only took seconds to make their choice. Others took their time, looking for a face with which they felt a connection."

"Leiza and I have sponsored many kids around the world. But this was different. We had put ourselves out there, with some vulnerability, to be chosen. And of all the kids choosing among all the sponsor photos, it was a little boy with a special name who chose us," World Vision U.S. President Edgar Sandoval Sr. shares about his experience of being chosen as a sponsor for the first time.

“The moment our eyes connected, when Kyine Kyine put her little hand into mine, my heart melted. When she looked into my eyes, I felt like she treated me like family. She held my hand tightly and was parading me around the village like I was her big sister, and really just opened her heart to me,” says Mediacorp actress Felicia Chin, our latest Goodwill Ambassador.
