Why can’t I send items directly to my sponsored child?

Last Updated: March 19, 2013 10:49 am

We do not encourage sponsors to send items by mail or courier to your child’s country because it is not guaranteed to reach your child. When a package other than paper goods is sent, there will be custom charges that our Country office would not be able to pay and there is no guarantee that this item will get to our office. The mail systems in most of the countries we work in are not reliable.
