Through Good Neighbors Canada's 1:1 Child Sponsorship Program, you are matched with a child in need in the Dominican Republic.
This can change a young person's life. Your help will pave the way for children to thrive, offering nutrition, health care and education.
You may sponsor for as long as you would like. You may also choose to be matched with more than one child.
Report during COVID-19
COVID-19 is putting a strain on the health
care system in the Dominican Republic.
Emergency food kits, masks, hand sanitizers and other hygiene items are being provided to our sponsored children's families.
Good Neighbors will continue to do its best to
support people in this time of need. We thank you for your donations to the community.
"I lost both my parents when I was really young. I remember staying up all night at the hospital when my dad fell sick. Ever since then, I have dreamed of becoming a doctor and helping others."
Being sponsored for 6 years changed Otegung's perspective on life.
It allowed her to have a safe home, quality education and medical care. She grew up in a healthy environment, with her sponsor's continuous support.
Thanks to the Good Neighbor's program, this year Otegung was accepted into the National University of Mongolia to study medicine.
"Life was really tough before I got sponsored", says Otegung. "The biggest benefit for me was the emotional support I got."
"I would not have been able to be here today without my sponsor and the support of Good Neighbors. It is my turn to help children in need now. I want to become a sponsor and make a difference in their lives."
Naran also studies to be a doctor
Sponsor Jung-won Min met Naran Kang Erden when he was 12 years old.
His parents had divorced when he was young. Staying with his mother was not easy, as she was battling an illness.
With growing concerns about living costs, Naran wouldn't have been able to stay in school, if it weren't for the support of Good Neighbors' child sponsorship program.
"I am so proud he got into medical school, after going through so much, and I believe Naran will help many people. It's very special to watch a child you are supporting grow. One of the most rewarding things in my life is definitely being a child sponsor."
Change children's future.
