HOW IS COMPLETE CARE DIFFERENT?

DSC03492Through Make Way Partners’ Child Sponsorship Program, you can provide complete care for an at-risk, unadoptable orphan in Sudan.

The Walen and Malen sponsorship opportunity is unique in that it is one of the few sponsorship programs where you are providing complete care. When you support a child through most sponsorship programs, you are subsidizing his or her care while the child has the blessing of at living with a family who simply needs help with school books or more food, for example. In Sudan, however, the situation is quite different. We have a lifetime commitment to these orphans because in Sudan most have seen their parents brutally murdered or taken as slaves by the Northern government or militias. Our children were then left alone to die in the desert where they are vulnerable to wildlife, slave raiders, disease and starvation. It is as if each child literally becomes our child as we may be his or her only surviving “Family.”

HOW IT WORKS

LindseyThrough Make Way Partners Child Sponsorship Program, you can provide Complete Care for an at-risk, unadoptable orphan.

1. Select the Sponsorship Level that works best for you.
2. Within 14 days you will receive a photo and story of your child in our Sponsorship Welcome Kit along with ways to connect with him or her.
3. Write to your child within the year and receive a written letter back.
4. Receive an annual progress report along with an updated photo from your child.

In Sudan’s Dinka language, “Walen” and “Malen” respectively mean Uncle and Aunt. Make Way Partners has adopted these words for our Complete Care Sponsorship signifying that when you sponsor a child you literally become his or her family. For these precious orphans, sponsors not only become the family who financially cares for them but may also be the only ones who pray for the children by name each day. Becoming a “Walen” or “Malen” allows you the opportunity to truly raise up a child in the way he or she should go. Choose a boy or girl to sponsor from one of our three Sudan locations and give the child hope for the future.

Walen & Malen – Providing Complete Care for an at-risk orphan: $105 per orphan/per month or $1260 per orphan/per year

In Sudan’s Dinka language, “Katwiir” means Bridge. Make Way Partners has adopted this word for our Supplemental Care Sponsorship signifying that when you stand in the gap for a child you literally become his or her bridge to the complete and total care that your child so desperately needs. For these precious orphans, sponsors not only help financially care for them but may also be the only ones who pray for the children by name each day. Becoming a “Katwiir” allows you the opportunity to help support a child already receiving partial care.

Children in need of bridge care are not pictured on the website. However, if you would like to be specifically assigned either a girl or boy or would like to request an age preference please contact sponsorship@makewaypartners.org and a member of the Child Sponsorship Team will help with your special requests.

KatwiirProviding Supplemental Care for an at-risk orphan: $72 per orphan/per month or $864 per orphan/per year

In Sudan’s Dinka language, “Mathdie” means Friend. Make Way Partners has adopted this word for our Partial Care Sponsorship signifying that when you help sponsor a child you literally become a friend who is helping to meet your child’s immediate needs. For these precious orphans, sponsors not only help financially care for them but may also be the only ones who pray for the children by name each day. Becoming a “Mathdie” is the first step in sponsorship and allows you the opportunity to help support a child in need of total care.

Children in need of Partial Care are not pictured on the website. However, if you would like to be specifically assigned either a girl or boy or would like to request an age preference please contact sponsorship@makewaypartners.org and a member of the Child Sponsorship Team will help with your special requests.

WHO WE ARE

puzzle-join-the-battleOf the 30 million victims of human trafficking in the world today, more than half of them are children. The most vulnerable children are orphans. Sudan has an estimated two million orphans who are unadoptable. Since 2005, Make Way Partners (MWP) has been developing the only indigenously-directed orphan-care network throughout Sudan — going specifically to areas where children are at the most risk and where adoption is not an option.

We partner with individuals, churches and organizations and work to prevent and combat this modern day evil through the power and hope of the Gospel.  Our Christ-centered orphan-care network is saving lives, restoring dignity and transforming communities.
