Tristan John Cabrera, the communications liaison for Unbound in the Philippines, has been covering the effects of Typhoon Rammasun after it made its way across a large part of the country. Despite the destruction caused by the storm, there have also been unexpected blessings.
Tomorrow is Hammock Day, and to celebrate we want to share some great photos of sponsored kids, staff and sponsors enjoying hammocks around the world.
“After meeting Mimi and her family my life was different. I learned it doesn’t take much to be happy. Edgar’s family had next to nothing but had the biggest smiles.” —David Ziegler, Minnesota
At 17, David Ziegler had the opportunity to travel with a church group to build a school in Guatemala. He wasn’t expecting to build a friendship that is still growing eight years later.

Bernie and Connie Tadda have been Unbound sponsors for 16 years. They and their daughter, Mary Kim, recently participated in an Unbound Awareness Trip to Guatemala and shared their experience with us.
Meeting our two sponsored friends was like taking a two-dimensional relationship and turning it into 3-D. The love and graciousness we experienced were overwhelming.
On Unbound’s first blogger trip, our social media coordinator, Victoria Brown, not only met with sponsored families but was also immersed in the Salvadoran culture. Read more to find out some of the things Victoria learned on her visit.
At Unbound, sponsorship helps children go to school, have healthy diets and improves the living situation for the entire family.
But it’s more than just tangible goods.
Sponsorship also creates a one-to-one connection between the sponsor and the sponsored friend. They get to know one another through notes and photos, and the sponsor gets to see how sponsorship impacts the sponsored friend’s life.
Neha, Mateo and Daphine are all waiting to start that connection.
Help us find sponsors for these three kids. Share this post on social media and let’s get them sponsored.
