Budgets are discussed and agreed upon before funds are dispersed, and Arms of Love retains accountants in each country to maintain the financial records of each project.

How much of my monthly support will actually benefit the child I sponsor?

Arms of Love works to ensure that most of the funds we receive are used to care for the children in our care. We rely primarily on donated office space and volunteer staff in the U.S. for our administrative and fundraising functions.  Historically, we have consistently been able to give 85-90% of every dollar directly to the support of our children’s homes.
