How one sponsor helped a family get a new home
Watch to see how support can really make a difference

Sponsor support can help in so many ways. Just ask John, who spoke with TSN’s James Duthie, a Children Believe volunteer ambassador, a few months ago in the video below.
The father of two girls was able to replace his crumbling family home in Ethiopia with a new one, thanks to help from his daughter’s sponsor. “This (new) house is much better than the old house,” John explains. “It’s reinforced with cement. My family could live in this house for more than 70 years.”
And, that wasn’t the only way this caring sponsor supported his sponsored child and their family. Watch the video below to see how another gift is giving them the opportunity to generate income.
