Your letters make a huge difference in your Compassion child’s life. In a study on the impact of sponsor letters, we found:
Children feel a greater sense of joy, love, encouragement and belonging.
They feel more motivated at school and church activities.
They consistently demonstrate greater confidence.
Letters are kept forever, regularly reading them, particularly when they are discouraged.
How do letters get to my Compassion child?
You write a letter with the supplied correspondence paper, paper of your own or using the online letter writing tools available in MyCompassion.
When we receive your hand-written letter, we scan it and send this image along with letters written online to Compassion’s office in your child’s country for translation.
Once it’s translated, our team in the field office confirms the translation, prints a copy of your letter and delivers it to your child’s Compassion centre.
That’s all there is to it. From the time you write your letter, it can be in your Compassion child’s hands in as little as three to four weeks! Your letters are also available in MyCompassion so you can refresh your memory when it’s time to write again.
