A Holiday Wish List from Children Served by ChildFund International

Flip through the pages of ChildFund International’s Gifts of Love and Hope catalog, and you’ll glimpse the hopes and dreams expressed by children in the 31 countries where we work — including the United States.

Here’s a sampling from the wish lists of vulnerable and excluded children who are anxiously waiting to see if their greatest needs are met.

board game for a youth center in Zambia
• scholarship for the “Little Chef” nutrition program in the United States

Each gift you choose will be used exactly as described in the catalog. The gifts come in all shapes and sizes — and price ranges — and are a great way to become more familiar with the work ChildFund does.
