A moment to remember
CCFC Board chair visits his sponsored child in Nicaragua
Visiting your sponsored child can make a lasting memory. Just ask Douglas Ellenor, chair of the Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) Board, who visited Carlos in Estelí, Nicaragua for the second time earlier this year.
Ellenor’s latest visit with his sponsored child was just as nerve-wracking as the first. “I’m a little anxious, because I haven’t seen the young kid for five years, but I’m really excited about going to see him and reliving with him the experience from five years ago,” he said.
Visits between a sponsor and their sponsored child are impactful, strengthening the relationship while showing the impact of monthly donations spent on access to school, medical care and clean water. Ellenor was impressed after his second visit with Carlos. “He has a great future in front of him, and my role in his upbringing is to continue to support him, and, through him, his family,” he said.
