This year the children are supporting a child through Covenant Kids Congo - a joint venture of World Vision and the Covenant Church. We have agreed to a monthly sponsorship of $40 which helps provide the community with feeding programs to help malnourished children, along with access to clean water, immunizations, vitamins and deworming. Support will also supply school classrooms and sanitary toilet systems. And through partnerships with local churches, children will learn about the surpassing love of Jesus Christ.
Please encourage your child to earn money through chores, grades or other tasks for this project. An offering is taken each Sunday in their class.
Vicky lives with her mother, one brother, and one sister. She is in first grade. Her mother is a market vendor and struggles to provide for the family. Despite her efforts, it is difficult to meet the family's needs.
Vicky is growing up in a poor area in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Many families live in small mud and brick homes with tin or thatched roofs. A typical diet consists of maize, peanuts, cassava, beans, sweet potatoes, and citrus fruits.
