Helping the World!!

In January 2002, Cyril joined Foster Parents Plan as child sponsor. He chose Kenya as the place to sponsor someone because he had seen first-hand, travelling to different parts of Kenya and Tanzania, the extreme poverty and harsh conditions in which many children and families live in.

His sponsor child’s name is Samson. It is exciting for Cyril to receive letters from Samson as well as a yearly report explaining how things are with Samson and his family, the work that is being done to improve the lives of the community in which Samson lives in.
