Your opportunity to help a very poor child is much too important to miss. And Christian Foundation for Children and Aging (CFCA), an international Catholic sponsorship program can show you the affordable way. Through CFCA you sponsor a child for the amount you can afford. Ordinarily it takes $20 a month to pro- vide one poor child with the life-changing benefits of sponsorship. But if this is not possible for you, we invite you to sponsor at a level you can afford (minimum $10). CFCA will see to it from other donations and the tireless efforts of our missionary partners that your child receives the same benefits as other sponsored children Your sponsorship pledge helps provide a poor child at a Catholic mission site with nourishing food, medical care, the chance to go to school - whatever is needed most. You can literally change a life[ And you can be assured your pledge has its greatest impact because our programs are directed by dedicated Catholic missionaries with a long-standing commitment to the people they serve. To help build your relal ionship, you receive a picture of your child, information about your child s family and country, letters from your child and the CFCA newslet- ter. But most important, you receive the satisfaction of helping a poor child! Little Corina lives in a small moun- tain town in Honduras. Her mother is blind and her father abandoned them.
