BRADENTON, Fla., July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A Christian child sponsorship nonprofit is pleased to announce their new website (http://www.globalmissionforchildren.org) that supports missionaries in Guinea-Bissau and Niger, Africa and Nepal, Asia, offering a Child Sponsorship program that serves all faiths. They are helping eradicate extreme poverty and disease that is killing 24,000 people per day, 75% children, due to starvation, curable disease and lack of clean water.
The uniqueness of GMFC is they are in areas of Africa where there are no other relief organizations. Partnering with Christian missionaries GMFC is helping to eradicate extreme poverty and deadly diseases. An example is an island named Uno off the coast of Guinea-Bissau where GMFC missionaries have been serving for the last 8 years. They have already built 6 schools, 6 churches and a small, unsterilized medical room on the island of Uno alone.
James Miller, Jr., president and co-founder of Global Mission for Children, states, "Child sponsorship (http://www.globalmissionforchildren.org/Ways_to_Give.php) is a very intimate and personal way to make a huge difference to eradicate extreme poverty and deadly diseases for less than $1 per day." Being a child sponsor for other organizations the past 7 years, James states, "It is one of the most rewarding and deeply spiritual experiences one will ever have and provides a spiritual bond between the sponsor and child, which enables them to witness the good their donations are providing."
Global Mission for Children is also fully committed to missionaries in Niger and Nepal, helping the poor by bringing medicine, food, shelter, hope and spirituality for the first time in their lives while preaching the word of God to comfort their hearts while saving souls.
Organizations like GMFC use the funds from individual sponsorship to help support an entire community with the goal of constructing new medical facilities, schools and churches. James states, "This creates an incredible personal connection that complements and is just as important as the monetary donation." The sponsors pick a child from GMFC's website and are encouraged to keep in touch with them primarily through email that is received by the missionaries and translated to the children and villagers then sent back to the donor. This creates a personal, long-term commitment from sponsors through their donations, contact and prayers. James states, "GMFC is not pursuing a temporary patch on poverty and disease but is building communities that will be self-sufficient forever."
Global Mission for Children is personally funded by its faithful founders and 100% of all donations go directly to the mission fields. GMFC's "Statement of Faith," "Mission Statement," and the founders' bios are posted on their website so donors will be comfortable to participate.
GMFC is a worldwide sponsorship organization that serves all faiths, creeds and ethnicities and has other sponsorship opportunities available like Water Well, Electricity and Medical Sponsorships.
