The children we care for are directly impacted by your giving. Each sponsorship dollar is maximized to holistically care for the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of the child. You will be given exclusive access that will allow you to share pictures, correspond, and engage with other sponsors and the children you are sponsoring.

Children In The Oasis Program

“I just ran my 50th marathon, and I ran it for Oasis.  I love to run with Oasis because of the family feeling amongst the runners and all of the support during training and on the course.  Most importantly, I love running for the children.”
