I received a letter from my sponsored child and it was addressed to another individual as well as me. I'm curious if a sponsored child can have two sponsors.

Your sponsored child's only sponsor is you! If you are a correspondent sponsor, then the letter could be addressed to you and the financial sponsor. However that does not seem to be the case by what you said above. So my thought would be that the child may have addressed it to her previous and current sponsor (you).

Hi Kris - sorry about that; it sounds like just a clerical error in preparing the letter for your sponsored child. Like Lizzie said, you are the only sponsor that Kreshine has (Compassion is a one-to-one sponsorship program). In fact, you are the very first sponsor that Krehine has had. If you'd like to return the letter to our office, we will gladly look into the error for you. Just include a quick note explaining why you are returning it, and the letter will make its way to our team for investigation.
