An online letter (without a photo attached) will be received by the office in that country quicker. Online letters are received daily, formatted and then sent in an email to the Compassion office in each country. They are then translated and printed. As projects are often very remote, the head office will wait until they have received a reasonable number of letters before they are delivered to a particular project. A member of staff will then hand deliver them as mail systems can be very erratic and unreliable. Many sponsored children do not have a postal address in the way that we do in Canada. Please be assured that we will do our best to make sure that your letter will arrive as soon as possible. The exchange of letters is a crucial element of sponsorship and it is an area we are constantly working to improve.

Online letters with photos are printed at the Compassion Canada office so as to ensure the quality of the printed photos. These letters then follow our regular letter process.

Can I write to my sponsored child?

March 19, 2013 10:49 am

Yes. We encourage sponsors to write to their sponsored child, to include photos and cards and encourage them in their spiritual journey. Children love to receive letters and cherish them. They also love to write to their sponsors and to pray for them. Children are required to write to their sponsors a minimum of two letters a year.

What are my donation method options?

March 19, 2013 10:49 am

Donations can be made by pre-authorized withdrawal (bank account or credit card), internet banking, telephone banking, Interac online, cheque or money order. These withdrawals can be made monthly or annually. Pre-authorized donations are safe, easy and convenient. Pre-authorized withdrawal from your bank account is our preferred method of payment, as it saves Compassion hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in transaction fees. Automatic withdrawals can be setup through our website by completing the Update Your Information form or by calling our office. Cheques made out to Compassion Canada will be accepted, as will money orders. Unfortunately deposits can not be made directly into Compassion’s bank account.
