The Poverty Aid Fund

Open your heart and help us to transform lives today! You define the way of your sponsorship. Will this be a one-time donation, few months or a year, it’s entirely up to you. You decide how much and for how long you can help. The funds raised through the Poverty Aid Fund are split between projects like the purchase of medication for missionary health centres, construction of wells and water supplies, as well as other necessary facilities. The Fund also supports the children who are still waiting for long-term sponsorship through Have a Heart Adoption programme.
