"If anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward"
- Matthew 10:42 NIV
It can be easy to take for granted that the children in our lives have all the clothing they need, and more. Their schools are held accountable for providing quality education. They have choices in their beliefs, and at a very basic level, have more water and food than they could ever consume. In short, these special children have all they need to shape their future.
We know that many children exist in a poverty we will gratefully never experience. They lack the resources needed to shape their future. For them, the future is the same as the present: existence and survival amidst hope.
In each of us lies a human desire to help. It can be difficult to know how to make a difference. COPA provides a way.
Through COPA, you have the unique opportunity to be a cupbearer to a child of LaHoya or Bombita in the Dominican Republic. By sponsoring a child through COPA, which in Spanish means "cup," your gift of only $15 each month will provide a child with an education that will not only change his and her life, but the lives of future generations to come. In the Dominican Republic, education is compulsory but may children cannot attend because of a shortage of schools, schoolbooks, and the lack of suitable clothing.
