Hi, I'm just another sponsor like you but one of the Compassion reps that monitor this forum can help you after the weekend.
I will say though that children do only have one sponsor, not multiple. I'm not sure where you heard otherwise.

Blessings, Kristen

I thought each child is supposed to have only 1 sponsor. How did you find out about other sponsors? Looking at the pictures of the sponsored children on Compassion website?

The staff will not be back until after the weekend, but they can help you on here or you can email socialmedia@compassion.com
Again, they won't be able to do anything until Monday though.

Hi Hideasmile. I am so sorry that you need to end your sponsorship, but I can certainly help you out. Regrettably, I was unable to locate your account. Would you be able to provide me with your sponsor number, child number, or the email address you use on the account? You can always email that to us at socialmedia@compassion.com for privacy.



Also, I do want to confirm what KristenH said this weekend. Each child does have only one sponsor, which is why the sponsor's prayers, letters and support mean so much to a child. Compassion works this way because we believe that the relationship that develops between sponsors and children is instrumental in a child's growth and development. I'm not sure what problem you encountered that made it look like your child has more than one sponsor, but I would be happy to help address that issue for you as well.

May be the child had 1 sponsor and 10 correspondents? Having more that 1 sponsor  per child would be a violation of Compassion policy. It would be discouraging if it turns out to be true.

A child cannot have more than one correspondent at the same time either.

Could it be that the child has had 10 PREVIOUS sponsors!  If so, poor kid, that's a lot, but I did have one with 6 before.  I means that many ppl sponsored the kid but then dropped her/him again.  THey wouldn't be sponsoring the child currently.
