A birthday is such an important day for a child, and thanks to caring kiwis, children in need were made to feel special on their birthdays this year. Watch our video to see what happened!


Thousands of kind kiwis sent back their ‘birthday buddy’ card to be given to a child who was still waiting for a sponsor.

In Sri Lanka, ChildFund held a ‘Birthday Buddy party’ for some of the children who received birthday buddy cards. Check out the video (above) to see their smiling faces!

Here is some information about children you can sponsor to make a difference in their lives.

Thank you for your kindness!
