Poverty keeps millions of children across the world in a seemingly endless cycle of despair—around 356 million children live in extreme poverty, which includes 150 million pushed into poverty in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.1 With no way to afford education, proper health care or even food, many children suffer in destitution, often with no way out. Hope is a stranger to these precious children.
However, GFA World has several initiatives, chief among them our child sponsorship program, to help free children from poverty and guide them toward the future they deserve—a future of peace and joy found through God’s love.
Join us this month as we pray for children in need worldwide.
