An unforgettable experience

This year, ChildFund sponsor Victorina and her daughter Soleil, from Western Australia, travelled to Cambodia to visit their sponsored child of three years, Phanit. “I’ve always believed that rather than just giving money it’s really important, if it is possible, that we’re able to travel and meet face to face,” says Victorina.

“I was interested and very excited about meeting someone in person that you [normally] only get to see their name on paper. Just watching her coming towards us was quite emotional – an unforgettable experience.”
