Hi Lana, if you are talking about a specific country then I have a child there also.  The country isn't allowing funds to come in and Compassion is holding our funds.  I am still paying because I have another child I can transfer the funds to in Compassion if worse case scenario, they kick us out of their country.  I have been praying and I am so concerned.  My child I sponsor there is blind and it is very sad to me!  God willing, that country will let our funds come through in January again.  I am sure the employees will see your comment on Monday and give you a reply.

Hi Lana! I think the email you received was about India just as Denise mentioned. Your child in the Philippines has not been affected, but we sent the email out to many of our sponsors due to the seriousness of the situation. The funds we receive for children living in that country are currently being held at our office while we are working to resolve the issue. If you have further questions regarding the email, please let us know! You can email us directly at socialmedia@compassion.com.
