Special Video Messages for FH Sponsors

Share this Story

WRITTEN BY Brooke Wente

Video is one of the best ways to see first-hand how your sponsorship is making an impact in your sponsored child’s life and in their community! That’s why we’re excited to share video updates from each country where Food for the Hungry has child sponsorship.

Your Support Has a Global Impact

FH child sponsors are supporting children, families, and communities in 17 countries located in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. We have received very encouraging video reports from FH staff, sharing how the support of sponsors has allowed FH to continue to be present in communities during this difficult time. It gave so many families hope knowing FH wouldn’t leave because of the pandemic. Instead, FH staff found new ways of helping them.

Because COVID-19 affected areas of our world differently, your support allowed FH to customize the responses to those varied and specific needs of families and communities.

For example, in Bolivia, you helped FH respond to multiple challenges brought on by COVID-19. Families were provided with food, hygiene supplies, clean water, and creative educational support. Watch this video to see how child sponsors have continued to help sponsored children have a brighter future, even amidst a pandemic.

Watch Your Special Video Message

Don’t miss the chance to watch these video updates! You’ll get a glimpse of what life is like in each community. And you will experience the joy of those you are helping.

Watch the video of the country where your sponsored child lives. You will see first-hand the difference you are making for your sponsored child and their community. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.

Gift Policy:
You may send small, flat paper-based items that can fit into a standard #10 size envelope, have a value of less than $5 dollars and weigh less than 4 ounces. We ask that you send small, flat items of this size because shipping is expensive and even small gift items can cause issues clearing customs.
You can send postcards or photographs, however, we ask that you visit here for more details about culturally appropriate guidelines for photos and other images. Please write the child’s ID # on the back of each item that you enclose with your letter to ensure that it reaches him/her.
Best gifts to send your sponsored child:
  • Paper dolls
  • Postcards
  • Pictures of yourself or family
  • Sports cards, individual cards (baseball, soccer, football)
  • Stickers (flat, paper-based, only a few at a time)
  • Paper-based simple bookmarks, stationery, drawing, or writing paper (single sheets)
  • Coloring pages (single sheets, not books)
  • Please do NOT send:
  • Monetary gifts
  • Liquids, candy, or food
  • Batteries or magnets
Please note, all items should be compliant with airline transport and safety regulations. Gifts that don’t meet the gift policy will be donated to a local Christian non-profit organization in Phoenix, Arizona, that works with low-income families. We will not be able to return them.
