WorldVision sent me pictures of my children and a brief details on them. I am now, a father of 2, one male, and one female. Let's move on on the introduction.

Let's start off with Magana, my female child from Thushalusaka, South Africa. She's 9 years old and currently in her first grade. Life skills is her favourite subject in school. She only have her mother, 2 brothers and a sister. Her father's status is unknown. Her mom was unemployed and it means a lot of burden to raise 4 kids.
Next, I have Davulla, my male child from Arpana, India. Davulla is 12 years old and currently studying in 8th grade. He is much more lucky compared to Magana because, he have his father and mother, both employed, together with another sister in the family. He likes Local Language most in school.
As we can see from these children's eyes, I can feel that they are trying, really hard to reach out for something. And I believe, we, can give them this something. It may not happen now, but that something could come in in 5 years, 10 years, or even 15 years! Now that I see them, I had no regret in sponsoring them as my children. If I have the ability, I would sponsor as many of them as I can! The question is, would you like to do your part too? It doesn't mean that you must sponsor a child and so, NO. Your help spreading the words will help to build a better world too!
FYI, we donors, are NOT ENCOURANGE to choose which child we would like to sponsor. That way, WorldVision will be able to ensure that every children gets equal share of help form the world. I'm a Buddhist and I believe in karma. I believe, these children, might had helped me out in my previous lifes and it's my turn, to help them back. Even if you are not Buddhist, I believe, your religion, too, encourage you to help out the others whenever you can, right?
I'm now a papa of two!
p/s: I would like to send gifts to these kids but, there are rules. First, it cannot be expensive. Secondly, it MUST only be able to fit into a A4 envelope. Besides than sending pictures, any other things I might be able to give them as gifts? Please advise!
