Recently, Jose Rodriguez, project director for Colombia at CFCA headquarters in Kansas, traveled to Colombia to visit with mothers of sponsored children.

During the workshop, mothers gathered to answer a question: “What is your dream?”

Many women had the opportunity to share what they were interested in pursuing and CFCA had the chance to help them make it happen.

Watch the video to learn more about how CFCA becomes a catalyst for these women to achieve their dreams.

Elderly woman finds hope in sponsorship

InesInes, a sponsored aging friend in El Salvador, has experienced much loss in her life.

Through CFCA’s Hope for a Family program, Ines and all sponsored aging friends can renew their sense of hope and well-being.

CFCA provides benefits such as food, health care and clothing for older adults, but one of the most important benefits we provide is friendship.

For some sponsored aging friends, CFCA gatherings and events are their only time for social interaction.

Ines tells her story in this beautiful video.

The story, faces behind our CFCA ‘thank-you’ video

By Judy-Anne Goldman, CFCA multimedia manager/producer

Sometimes someone says ìThank youî and you know that theyíre speaking from their soul. Those two words carry a profound meaning.

You know the person saying it has been deeply touched. You can see it in their eyes.

This video carries that kind of a message. Many of them!

CFCA communications correspondents in El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Kenya and the Philippines visited sponsored friends to capture their special messages to their sponsors, and to all sponsors who support people living in poverty.

The footage was taped in the past three months and then sent to CFCA’s Kansas City headquarters to be edited.

It’s really exciting that so many people worked together from so many different parts of the world to send such a short but powerful message in so many different languages!

I couldnít end this post without a HUGE thanks to our amazing video team: Henry and Ana Cristina in El Salvador; Luis, Gerver and Ricardo in Guatemala, Sreekanth in India, Regina in Kenya, to the team in Quezon City, Philippines; and to Michele in Kansas City for her fantastic editing skills.

And thank you for your continued support of CFCA and of families living in poverty around the world!
