Release From Poverty - Repair The Ruins - Rebuild Their Lives

Poverty destroys family life and tears families apart.  By tackling the long-term pressures of poverty, MWB empowers families to stay together.

Options for family sponsorship

Your commitment of $40 a month will support a family living in poverty to reach their full potential. You'll give them hope for an independent future.

You can choose to sponsor 1 family place at $40 a month. We will find three other supporters to share the sponsorship of the family with you, or you can sponsor a family one-to-one at $160 a month.

How will my sponsorship help a family?

Your support is crucial to help move a family from dependency to self-sufficiency by:

  • removing many of the day-to-day pressures that drive them apart
  • meeting basic needs, such as food, health-care and warm clothing
  • bringing long-term, sustainable change as they move towards self-sufficiency.

How family sponsorship works

Becoming self-reliant takes time. Our first priority is to meet basic needs. We offer monthly assistance with food, clothing or hygiene parcels. As your sponsored family becomes stronger, your support allows us to work with them in planning steps towards independence.

Developing a personal relationship

You can send letters and presents (some conditions apply) and pray for your family. In return, you'll receive an annual update about the family and photo, showing the difference your support is making. Some MWB sponsors also take the opportunity to visit their family.
