So in all sadness, I made the decision to cancel my child sponsorships that I had with two major charity organisations. During the period after I sponsored those children, I came to learn various things that made me unhappy and reluctant to continue my sponsorship with them. One of the main things was that I wasn’t exactly sponsoring or helping the children in any way and all I was doing is to help fund the organisations. I mean it is fine because without their work, those that need help wouldn’t be getting it at all but I would rather regularly donate to them instead of my money going to them under a masked excuse of ‘child sponsorship’.
I am still sponsoring education for the two Sri lankan girls via EducateLanka. Maybe now that I have more funding, I should consider sponsoring another….
