Q. I want to sponsor someone who needs help the most. How do you determine who among the children and elderly on your waiting list has the greatest need for sponsorship?

A spirit of welcome fills the new Nadine Pearce Center, where families in eastern Guatemala gather as part of their local Unbound community.
Nadine was one of the co-founders of Unbound known for her warmth and hospitality. So it’s fitting that the center named in her honor is a home base for families and staff members from Unbound.
“It’s our center,” said Olga, whose son Douglas is sponsored through Unbound. “It’s like having a new home.”
The CFCA community is there for families before and after natural disasters strike.
Sponsorship brings families into a caring community that supports them in their daily lives and in times of crisis.
Hundreds of CFCA families saw their houses damaged or destroyed as Super Typhoon Haiyan slashed its way through the central Philippines less than two weeks ago. Farmers lost crops and fishermen lost fishing gear.
CFCA will work side by side with families as they rebuild their homes and livelihoods. Donations to our Disaster Assistance Fund will help in this effort.

From the distance, Manchay, Peru appears dirty and desolate.
Small and sometimes rickety houses, cheerfully painted in lilac and blue sit at the base of what appear to be mountains made of dust and rock. Manchay is covered in haze.
