In the past two days, social media has been washed by sponsored children who "smoke, drink, and drive". Netizens are in a rage, and many people leave messages asking for help. In fact, The New York Times did an in-depth investigative report on Vision's Sponsored Children Program in 2016 , dismantling the mystery of sponsorship. The origin of the story is that a Middle Eastern journalist, Diaa Hadid, got lost at Sydney Airport and met the help of Brendan, an enthusiastic Australian policeman.
During the period, Brendan mentioned popular database that he participated in the World Vision Sponsored Children Program in 2003, sponsoring a monthly sponsorship of 39 US dollars and sponsoring one child. A Palestinian child named Othman. Brendan said he has donated $1,100 over the next five years, sent Christmas cards, Easter cards, photos and letters to Othman, but never heard back. He really wanted to know the situation of the children he sponsored, so he asked the reporter to help him find out. The reporter went to Husan,
Othman's countryside, with the World Vision sponsorship card in hand, and found out that there was a real person. However, Othman's middle name was wrongly written on the sponsorship card, and his family said that they had no impression of signing up for the sponsorship program, not receiving money, and no one telling Othman to reply to the sponsor.
