Will I be the only person sponsoring “this child”? (so there wont be duplicates)
Yes, we will be coordinating very closely with the sponsor organizations and organizations on the ground that are coordinating the efforts for the needs of children to ensure that each child try to find an individual sponsor adult.
What is the cost of sponsoring a child?
SyrianOrphans.org requests that individuals sponsor a child for $50, recommending that individuals hold their sponsorship for a year. There is the flexibility to do automatic payments, as well as individual one time payments if one is not able to sponsor for a full year, but want to help in any way possible.
