What is the current situation with Compassion in India?

Updated Wednesday 15 March, 2017

Since mid-2016, we have been facing government restrictions that prevented us getting funds through to India.

For months, we have attempted to resolve the situation through a number of channels—we’ve done everything we can for the sake of more than 147,000 children and 589 church partners there.

The government has not lifted its restrictions and all of our local partners, including our country offices, have depleted their resources.

Compassion has therefore formally ended all program operations in India on 15 March 2017.
