Adopt-A-Child is the child sponsorship programme of Living Water International.  The mission is to reach whole families for Christ by ministering to their children, by providing nourishing meals, medical and dental care, and genuine friendship.  As a relationship builds and confidence is established, natural opportunities for evangelism occur.

Sponsors from the UK send £18 a month or £216 a year to cover the bi-weekly nutritional meals as well as the medical, dental, and spiritual care for their sponsored children.

Adopt-A-Child was begun by Mack and Peggy McKeown in 1983 in the poorest regions of Guatemala.  Their Guatemalan adopted son, Dr Pablo McKeown, is now chief medical officer for Living Water International.  In 1995, the work was expanded to include Albania.
