What happens if there is more than one child in the family?
Here at Compassion, we want to help as many families as possible. Therefore, we generally sponsor only one child from each family. However, if the family is in great need, up to three children could be enrolled.
The great news is that that the benefits of the sponsorship programme reach into the family and wider community of your sponsored child. Because all our programmes are run through local churches, there are plenty of opportunities for families to access things such as health screenings, nutritional advice and support, parenting workshops and other church activities. Sponsored children often share what they learn at the Compassion project with siblings and many lead their entire families to Christ. As well as encouraging your sponsored child's family through your letters and prayers, you can also send financial gifts to the family.
