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.
