A Bush secret

George H.W. Bush secretly sponsored a Filipino child for 10 years. Read some of the letters they sent each other

Even after his death, George H.W. Bush continues to warm our hearts.

The 41st President sponsored a 7-year-old boy in the Philippines for ten years using a pseudonym, the nonprofit who connected them revealed.

Through Compassion International, a nonprofit organization that uses local churches to help children in poor communities around the world, Bush sponsored a boy named Timothy. For a decade, the former President sent funds that went toward Timothy's education, extracurricular activities and some of his meals. The organization has shared some of Bush's letters with CNN.

The Bush family was not available to comment on the letters, but Jim McGrath, a spokesperson for the Office of George H. W. Bush, confirmed the letters' authenticity.
