Sponsor a Child

Individual child sponsorship addresses the needs of a specific child. Your giving of $35 per month (or more) will provide food, clothing, educational opportunities, medicine and shelter for a child who otherwise would go without. The children are all connected to a Salvation Army children’s home or programs in one of the many countries The Salvation Army is working in around the world.

As a sponsor of an individual child you will receive a welcome pack which contains a photo of your sponsor child, an information sheet that includes the child’s name, date of birth and a brief history of their current circumstances. You are able to correspond with the child you sponsor through the Child Sponsorship Office in Blackburn Victoria.

If you would like to give a gift of sponsorship to a friend or family member, please contact the child sponsorship team on 03 8878 4543 to arrange this.
