Why do I need to go through Compassion to communicate with my sponsored child?

Updated Friday 23 September, 2016

Having your sponsored child's letters go via the child development centre is important for three main reasons:

  • It allows the program staff to become familiar with your sponsored child's requests for prayer and support, and to help them appropriately.
  • It enables us to protect you from receiving unsolicited, inappropriate or fraudulent requests from members of your sponsored child's community who could otherwise gain access to your personal details.
  • It enables us to translate your sponsored child's letters, which are often written in a different language.

To keep your personal details secure, it's important that you don't make contact with your sponsored child outside Compassion channels, such as by phone, e-mail or using social media. If you are approached directly, please contact us to let us know.
