Y Ly Tra
Yay, I have found a sponsor!
Age: 14 years old
Needs: Calculator, musical instrument
Y Ly Tra’s mother has liver cancer, and her father is bedridden since he had a severe accident. Unfortunately, her parents cannot afford any medical treatment. They could, therefore, also not take care of Y Ly Tra anymore and brought her, as a consequence, to Teresa’s orphanage.
Y Ly Tra is very tiny for her age. Nonetheless, she is a delighted child that loves singing. That is also why she is eager to learn how to play an instrument. This dream could soon be fulfilled since Teresa’s brother offered to teach music classes at the orphanage. However, until now, there is a lack of space to make such classes possible. A donation to our charity contributes to constructing an appropriate area for making music.
Furthermore, Y Ly Tra needs urgently a calculator for her math class to keep up with the materials.
The best way to support Y Ly Tra is to become her personal sponsor. Thereby, you support her financially while growing up until she becomes an independent woman.
i would like to sponsor Y Ly Tra:
How does sponsorship work?
You can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
We cannot support everyone, but everyone can support someone. Donating 93 cents per day can help Teresa in creating a homey environment and covering expenses for food, medical care, clothes, and tuition fees, preparing the child for a financially independent life after graduating from higher education.
How does it work?
It's quite easy. Once you know which child you would like to support, you will be redirected to the payment options. You can then also choose the amount you would like to contribute every month. The minimum amount is a contribution of 28€ per month. Next, you can fill in the details we need for your tax contribution receipt and the sponsorship letter, which will be sent to you digitally (address and email). If you would like to leave your phone number, we would be thrilled to thank you for your support personally. After filling in your personal information, you are officially a sponsor for one child in Vietnam! In the coming days, you can expect an email with a personal sponsorship letter. This letter will include further details about the child you chose to sponsor. From then on, you will receive every 8 months, texts and audiovisual updates about the child, and you will be notified if anything extraordinary happens.
How can I become part of my sponsored child´s life?
Twice a year, you will receive updates about your sponsored child. Otherwise, our blog and social media accounts are regularly updated with what is going on in the children's life. However, if you want to contact the child you are sponsoring, you can write them a letter in English or Vietnamese. We will take care of forwarding the letter to the orphanage and translating your message if it's in German. Additionally, it is possible to send us emails which we will forward directly to the child. Teresa has a smartphone and makes sure that the child receives your message. The children are always excited to receive messages from their sponsors and especially short videos and pictures. In case you would like to surprise your child with a small gift, please contact us first. There might be something they have been dreaming of for a long time!
What could I write about?
The children find it exciting to learn more about the life of their sponsors. You could, for example, write about your family, friends, pets, what you like to do (job, hobbies, interests). You could also write about where you come from, what your country looks like, and the culture (food, language, etc.). The children are always especially excited to receive videos and photos.
