Having a Heart for Children

“Our first encounter with World Vision was through its child sponsorship programme. It has truly been life-changing and fulfilling to see our sponsored children growing up healthy, happy and with the hope of a better future.” Eric Tham & Diane Vo, Child Sponsors of 3 children

A couple who has the heart for children, Eric and Diane first sponsored a child in 2010. When they started to volunteer their time and service at World Vision, they learned more about the impact of World Vision’s work among children and communities in need. As a result, they decided to sponsor two more children.

The epitome of their sponsorship journey was their visits to the sponsored children’s home in Myanmar and South Africa. They saw for themselves how World Vision’s development projects were empowering the local community. The dedication and care of the staff working among the sponsored children and the communities truly touched them. It was a wonderful time of bonding as they interacted with the local people. Most of all, it was priceless to be able to play and spend time with their sponsored children! They were finally able to see them face to face, instead of just looking at the photos they had been receiving.

“Today, as World Vision’s volunteers, we are doing what we can to inspire others to join us on the child sponsorship journey! We believe that we are not only changing the lives of our sponsored children; they have in fact changed ours, too,” said Eric Tham.
