The Children's Relief Fund, a ministry of the Antiochian Archdiocese, has launched a website  enabling online donations via PayPal, and allowing potential sponsors to apply directly for sponsorship online. Since 1983, the Fund has served as a non-profit charitable and humanitarian organization dedicated to providing education scholarships to needy children in Lebanon and Palestine. Fr. George M. Rados, National Director, reports that currently CRF is sponsoring 341 children in Lebanon and 34 in Palestine. A helpful FAQ section  of the website explains all aspects of sponsorship, including how to communicate with the child, and how the funds from sponsors are distributed.
Heartwarming testimonials on the new site tell the Fund's story:
“We thank God that there are people like you who believe in helping others. God bless you.”
“I highly appreciate your financial aid to my daughter. In fact, without your financial support to my daughter, my daughter will not be able to proceed with her studies.”
“Your sponsorship and donation of $300 made me work harder to achieve my goals. Thank you.”
“I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for the schooling of my son. Your help gives us hope that someone like you is feeling for you. So my family and I pray for your well being, may God bless you.”
