Editor's note: We're thrilled to again be partnering with our friends at Unbound to be a part of their mission serving families around the world! Unbound has joined us as a "World View Wednesday" contributor. Each month, Unbound will be sharing a column to inform you about the lives of families around the world. We will also offer you the chance to partner tangibly with them by prayerfully considering sponsoring a child or aging friend. Lisa Hendey
Margorie, who likes to be called Gogo, is a beautiful eleven-year-old girl growing up in the Philippines. She likes to sing, dance and her favorite subjects in school are Math and Science. She helps her family at home by washing the dishes and sweeping the floor.
Gogo lives with her aunt, brother, sister and seven other family members. Her parents are separated but still find some time to spend with the family. The children are being supported by their aunts and uncles. The ten family members all live together in a small house made of wood, a galvanized iron sheet roof, and cement floors.
By sponsoring Gogo, she will begin to receive the tangible benefits such as education and nutrition. This will also provide the family to be fully integrated in a local caring community, with programs and services designed to improve their quality of life and empower them to break the cycle of poverty.
