Please rest assured that Compassion exhausted every possible solution to resolve the situation. For months, we worked diligently with in-country legal counsel in an attempt to resolve all issues with the Indian authorities.
We also leveraged key relationships in India, engaged the expertise of respected consultants and requested the assistance of United States Congressmen, the U.S. Secretary of State and the U.S. Ambassador to India. Compassion International representatives even testified in front of the House Foreign Affairs Committee seeking their assistance.
We had thousands—possibly even millions—of Compassion supporters around the world praying for a resolution with great persistence and faithfulness.
However, in the end, we were unable to resolve matters and our operations in India are now closed.
