Why did you announce the closure on 1 March?

Updated Wednesday 15 March, 2017

We needed to make an official announcement of the closure before 15 March, in order to properly honour our Indian staff and the children we serve. Our staff in India were given the news that Compassion was formally withdrawing from India as they needed time to close down the office and finish their work.

We therefore wanted to make sure we communicated this decision really clearly to everyone affected by it—not just staff in India and the children we serve there, but sponsors of Indian children and, ultimately, all Compassion supporters.
