Sponsoring a child through Compassion is not just sending money to Compassion. Compassion offers ways to write or even visit your sponsored child.
I get excited every time a receive a letter from Libin, my sponsored child. Your sponsor child will write telling how they are doing and what is going on with their family. You can write a letter to your sponsored child by using the from mail with your child's letter or through the Compassion's website. Your letter means a lot to your sponsor child.
Compassion also offers tours where you can visit the project which our sponsored child on too. You can visit with your child. In April, five people will be going on a tour to India.
