Raewyn and Brent Ford have seen their sponsored children's lives transform through letters and photos and witnessed them develop from vulnerable young children to aspiring leaders in their communities. 

A highlight was visiting one of their sponsor children in Tanzania. "It was a true privilege to meet her and her family. The World Vision staff showed us several initiatives in the community being funded by child sponsors, such as building health clinics, renovating school classrooms and installing wells to provide access to clean water. 

This work is making a huge difference to so many people. We were so impressed by what we saw that when we updated our Wills, we each chose to include a gift to World Vision. It seemed an obvious way of continuing to help people who have not had the same advantage as we have."

Angela Campbell's family journey with World Vision started in the 1980s after a trip to Mexico. They found the experience confronting, as the Auckland family was used to the comforts of life. 

"Returning to New Zealand was the perfect opportunity to start sponsoring a child in Mexico. More than forty years later, I've lost count of the number of children we've sponsored. It's also been a privilege to be a representative for the 40 Hour Famine, visiting Auckland schools.

Seeing the work first-hand gave me a much better idea of how a future gift in a Will can help create life in all its fullness for children,"  shared Angela.

"By remembering World Vision in my Will and leaving a legacy of hope, it'll be possible for me to support the most vulnerable children – even after I've gone."

Geoff and Winfred Fawcet are approaching their 50th anniversary of partnering with 14 communities in South America, Africa and Asia. They started their World Vision journey in 1971 when they sponsored a child in Cambodia. 

Nearly 30 years later, they visited Cambodia, where they saw World Vision continuing to make a lasting difference in the lives of children's families and their communities. 

Geoff says, leaving a gift in their Will means they can help World Vision to "continue their good work helping children long after we're gone." 

After living a blessed life, they feel privileged to leave a legacy so they can continue supporting the most vulnerable. "It feels good to do something to help," Winifred shared.
