A sponsorship program of For God's Children International
For God's Children International serves hundreds of institutionalized and at-risk children, teenagers, and adults in Romania and Moldova. “How may I help?” you might ask. We invite you to become an official SponsorLink sponsor. By sponsoring the children with whom we work, or one of our ministry programs, you will help us a lot! Your monthly gifts or one-time donation will help us cover the costs of providing these services. Below you will find more information about the children, adults with special needs, and ministry areas where we serve.
SponsorLink sponsors receive regular updates by mail, email, or via social media. Donations to For God’s Children International are tax-deductible (Fed. ID/EIN#: 42-1448176). Please include a note with your gift indicating the SponsorLink designation to which you would like your gift to be designated (e.g., SponsorLink – Students, or SponsorLink – Foster Children, etc.). If you have any questions, please contact FGCI Associate Director, Jeremy Befort.
Thank you for your prayers and support!

SPONSOR MINISTRY PROGRAMS: Food & supplies for poor families.
Suggested Donation: Any $ amount
Due to the Coronavirus lockdown, many Romanians and Moldovans have suffered severe financial hardships, especially poor families and widows in small villages. With the support of our sponsors, we have sent food and supplies to several poor families and government orphanages. The picture to the left shows a widow from Zebil to whom we sent food via our Romanian staff. You can find out more by clicking on the link below.
