Nuru is a 21-year-old young man who lives in Kumbo, Cameroon. He is one of eight children in his family. He has four brothers and three sisters. He lives with his parents and siblings in a mud-brick house with earthen floors and a metal roof. His father is elderly and unable to do much work. Nuru has been unable to attend school regularly because of his family's poverty, but is currently in grade six at the government high school in Kumbo. His best subjects are Science and Chemistry. He enjoys playing football with his friends. At home, he is responsible for collecting firewood and helping with the gardening chores. He would like to be able to continue his education because he would like to become a nurse or doctor. At the Kumbo Sponsor Site, the Sisters of St. Therese of the Child Jesus use sponsorship funds to provide proper nutrition and medical care. Children also receive educational support to help them in their studies.
If paying by credit card online please write down the child’s ID number. Thank you!

A SPECIAL NOTE TO SPONSORS FROM THE USA. We will send you a receipt for income tax purposes following the end of each calendar year. Chalice is not a registered charity in the USA, but Canada and the USA do have a tax treaty which allows a tax deduction under certain conditions. Basically, a resident of the USA may be eligible to claim a deduction against taxable income received from Canada. Please consult a qualified financial advisor to review your own personal situation. You can still sponsor if you don't require an official income tax receipt. We have many sponsors from the USA and we send them our heartfelt thank you.
