Meeting Violet

It’s all about the one! Eleven-year-old Violet has been part of Paul and Linda’s family since she was six. Witness the tear jerking moment when their two worlds powerfully and wonderfully collide. You might not be able to change the world, but you can change the world for one child through Tearfund child sponsorship  

A commitment of $56 a month connects a child to their local church family and gives them an education, access to a doctor and a safe place to play. Paul and Linda changed the world for Violet—whose world will you change today through child sponsorship?
