Reynil is 8 years old. He desperately wants to go to school, but has never been. His father died the same day his younger brother, Arnel, now age 3, was born. To earn enough money to get food, Reynil’s mother goes from house to house every day to look for someone who wants laundry done, a manicure or pedicure, shoes repaired, or any number of things to earn a little money to feed her family. Reynil’s job? To take care of his 3 year old brother. He also cooks and washes dishes. There is barely enough money to buy food for this family. The expense of going to school for Reynil is not even a possibility. His mother agrees that he needs to go to school and if sponsored, Reynil will have the joy of going to first grade. As a sponsor, you can impact the life of this little boy and change the direction of his life. You can give him and his mother hope that the future could be better.
We are praying for 500 additional children to be sponsored in the Philippines by the end of May. Reynil is one of them. Will you help? Go to Sponsor A Child.
