Meet our first child, Odilia-lisseth Batrez Torres. She’s six years old and she’s from El Salvador. Russ and I are sponsoring her for the next 12 months, and hopefully until she no longer needs to be sponsored.
I’ve had a heaviness on my heart for a while. I know I need to do something to elevate girls in the world. There is an excellent organization called Because I am a Girl, which is part of Plan Canada. and you should watch this video about why I specifically chose a girl to sponsor.
For $37 a month, Russ and I are ensuring that Odilia will go to school, have access to clean water, healthcare, and sanitation. It doesn’t take much to change lives. I know it’s just one life, but helping anyone is better than helping no one. It is important to give your time and be aware of what is happening in the world.
Even though I don’t think it should mean anything, because helping is helping, Plan Canada is not affiliated with a Christian organization.
