Children's Program Update

Honduras

Thank you for sponsoring a child in Honduras. Your gift has changed a life forever.

We want to let you know what your sponsored child and other kids in the program have been up to this year … all because of your compassionate giving.

The first birthday celebration for some

This year, children at the “Jesus, Friend of the Children” after-school program in Honduras anxiously awaited their birthdays so they could participate in a special celebration. Each month, the birthday children and their friends traveled to a local fast-food restaurant, where they enjoyed hamburgers, ice cream, and a variety of games. One of the highlights for each child was taking a turn at whacking a piñata!

Here’s what some of the children had to say about celebrating their special day:

  • “I do not remember this day being celebrated in my house before, and now this date will be unforgettable.” — Heber
  • “I had lost hope of my birthday celebration, but when I saw what they were doing, I looked forward to this special day since [my birthday] is not celebrated [at home] due to [my family’s] scarce economic resources.” — Solyani
  • “This party is highly anticipated because it is the opportunity to sit in a Wendy’s restaurant and savor the delicious hamburgers and ice creams and to [play] games with my [friends] at “Jesus, Friend of the Children.” — Anuar
  • “I have never been to a place where there are games and delicious hamburgers. I told my mom how nice it was on my birthday.” — Allison
  • “He had never been in a place like that before. For him, it was a dream come true.” — Moises’ mother after her son brought home a piece of hamburger from his birthday party to share with her
