Thank you for your kindness and interest in “adopting” an elderly person. Sponsorship is a wonderful way to experience the joy of helping someone in need and will make a lasting difference in the lives of those in dire need of your support and attention.
Exchanging letters with your beneficiary can build a wonderful relationship that will be rewarding for both of you. Through the letters you will learn about their life and country. In return, the elderly love to hear who you are. You may even like to include pictures of yourself. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a reply to every letter, because the health condition of some of our babushka’s does not permit them to do so.
The quickest and easiest way to write to your beneficiary is by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can post a letter. Please include your sponsor number in all correspondence. Our staff will translate and deliver your letters for you.
You can also send gifts for special occasions to address specific needs or simply as an act of love. If you wish to send additional monetary gifts, please inform us by email about the amount and transfer the money to one of our bank accounts. Indicate that your donation is an additional gift so we apply your donation correctly and do not forget to mention your personal sponsor number. Your monetary gift will be given to your beneficiary during the regular money distribution.
Parcels can be send to our office. We will deliver your present to your beneficiary and send you a photo of her/him receiving it. Please include your sponsor number on the parcel. We kindly ask you not to send fragile products as they may brake. We suggest that you send something general, like clothing, scarves, socks or gloves, which would be very welcome in our freezing winters.
Meeting your adopted babushka or dedushka can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience and an opportunity to see with your own eyes how much your sponsorship is helping your beneficiary. Your beneficiary would be delighted to see you!
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are interested in visiting. We will make arrangements related to your visit, including interpretation assistance and transportation from our office to your beneficiary’s home. Apart from visiting your beneficiary, you are very welcome to meet with the staff of Babushka Adoption Foundation.
