Double the Fun!

Have you ever wondered how you could double your influence through Compassion? Well, I might just have the answer for you! Compassion International's website has so many children waiting for sponsors that sometimes you can find twins that need sponsors. Rosalie, my sponsored child in the Philippines, has a twin sister also sponsored through Compassion and I can imagine that is a huge blessing for her family. Tonight I want to introduce you to six pairs of twins around the world. Their families all live in extreme poverty and they are in need of the support and encouragement of a sponsor through Compassion.

Here's how it's going to work. I'll introduce you to both siblings and tell you what interests they have in common and what differences they have between them. If you want to view their full profiles on, click on their names. Here we go!

First up are Juan and Carlos. They are 4 years old and live in El Salvador with their father and mother. They have all the same favourite activities: soccer, playing with cars, and running. They must be very similar! Although I think Carlos is a little more attached to his mom than Juan is :)

Next is Irene and Irena. They are 6 years old and live in Togo with their father, mother and one other sibling. They both have average marks in school and enjoy playing with dolls and running. Irene also likes singing. Irena likes listening to music.

Next I would like to introduce you to twin sisters Syombua and Nzangi from Kenya. They are 5 years old and live with their father and mother and one other sibling. Cleaning the kitchen is their household chore and they both love to play with their friends!

Next up are twin brothers from Bangladesh, Durjoy and Dhiresh. They are 5 years old and live with their father and mother. They both enjoy soccer and running. 

Next up are the lovely Akoete and Akoele from Togo. They are brother and sister and are 6 years old. They live with their mother. They attend kindergarten where their performances are average, and they like to play group games. Akoete likes to play soccer and Akoele likes to play with dolls. 

And last, but certainly not least, twin sisters Akor and Akweley from Ghana! They are 4 years old and live with their father and mother and three other siblings. They both run errands as a household chore and Akor also helps in the kitchen. They both enjoy playing with dolls and playing group games. 

Many of these children have been waiting over 300 days for a sponsor. If you've ever wanted to sponsor twins through Compassion, now might be your chance! Why not double the fun and double the influence you can make in their lives and the lives of their families?
