Every weekday Blessman International’s Del Cramer Child Development Center provides physical, spiritual, emotional, cognitive, and social development to 117 children in Limpopo, South Africa. These children face some of the most challenging circumstances, such as starvation, broken homes, medical issues, and more. Del Cramer provides a glimpse of hope for these children, and so can you. Our newest program, One Child at a Time, allows you to have an opportunity to change a child’s life as a sponsor. For only $1 a day, you will provide a hot meal, place of safety, educational training, spiritual development, sports training, and fellowship/social development for one of our 135 children for an entire year. You’ll receive updates about your sponsored child throughout the year. You and your sponsored child will form a bond as you exchange information about your lives; your likes, hobbies, interests, families, and more. You will celebrate them in their milestones and become one of their biggest supporters throughout the entire year. You will allow these children to grow in every area of their life, all for just $1/day.



The One Child at A Time initiative is designed to support some of the most vulnerable children in South Africa while connecting Iowans to a ministry they may have experienced first-hand through a short-term mission trip or heard about from others.
