Benefits of Child Sponsorship
For a little over a dollar a day, you'll provide a child in need with access to life-saving basics like:
What is Child Sponsorship?
It is a relationship between the children of Shadow of His Wings and people from all over the world.
While one of the goals is the financial support that it takes to care for the children, a key point is also the building up and inner healing of each child. Most children come to Shadow of His Wings with damaged hearts from a past of people constantly treating them like they had little or no value.
The sponsorship relationship shows them that there are people out there who love them and will pray for them and maybe even send them a letter every now and again.

Note: Currently the Guatemalan mail system has been shut down and we are not able to receive mail. Please contact our sponsorship coordinator for information on how to communicate with your child.
Important Sponsorship Update!
Governments around the world are working to limit the amount of time that children are in homes, this is true in Guatemala as well. At times this is great, especially when many children are in overcrowded, poorly managed homes, but other times it clearly is not. It is good that the courts are feeling pressured to find suitable family members to care for these kids. These kids long for family and if a member of their family exists who will lovingly care for them then we fully support that. On the other hand sometimes that family member does not exist and we would prefer that the kids stay here and not be sent back to potentially dangerous situations.
**Please be in prayer with us that while the courts seek to make changes that will benefit the children, that they do so without putting them in harms way.
What does this mean?
It means that our kids may be with us for shorter periods of time. It means that sponsoring a child may be a bit difficult if so many are transient. We are asking that you please stick with us during this time. We still desperately need your support while we seek to care for our kids no matter how long they are here with us.
