Sponsor
As a Bethesda sponsor you know you are meeting all a child's needs, every month. This amount covers their food, clothing, education and care staff costs. You'll receive a sponsor pack with information about the child, a photo and a letter twice a year written by the child.
If you are not in a position to fully sponsor a child then you can choose to support a child's staff care, food or education costs each month. As well as knowing you're making a valuable regular contribution to a child's life you'll receive letters written by the children regularly.

Who we are

The organisation is a registered charity and the trustees are listed on the about us page. We have all spent time with the children and been amazed at the atmosphere of joy and love there. We've seen how the children are some of the happiest and confident we have met. We want to make sure the work continues with sustainable funding - that the children continue to have the food, education and other essentials they need.

FAQs

How much of my money reaches the child I support?

Bethesda Children’s Foundation expenses are currently met by the directors so all of your money reaches the children's home. We do not expect this to change significantly in the future but if it does, we will, of course let you know.

Why do you select a child for me?

All our children will have only one sponsor. The sponsor will not share their sponsor child with another. So, we select a child for you to avoid two or more sponsors selecting the same child.

Can I write personally to the child?

At any one time it's possible that not all the children will have sponsors, especially when the scheme starts. Children who don't have sponsors might feel less important or special than those who do. Because of this the children themselves don't know whether they are being sponsored. If visiting the home we ask that sponsors don't treat the child they're sponsoring differently and don't identify themselves as the sponsor.
