This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: How do I cancel my sponsorship?

regrettably, like others who have posted, I want to cancel my sponsorship to India.  I feel terrible for my sponsored child, but I do not feel comfortable with funds in holding and not being distributed appropriately.   Can the full amount I have be donated to another child?  Or can it be refunded back to me?  I would appreciate the help on this matter.  Thank you.

Another option just so you know is you could ask to have them send the funds to the "unsponsored children fund" which covers children after registration and before a sponsor chooses them or covers gaps if children loose their sponsor. I'm not sure how they will resolve the closure in India.  We have other places to sponsor, and all the kids need help regardless of which country they are from, but it's still sad to loose the country this way. :(

Hi Sara, I'm sorry to hear that you're sponsorship of your child is ending in India. I'm another sponsor and I don't have any kids in India but I can just imagine that's heartbreaking for you. I believe Compassion will apply your funds to another child if you would like to choose another child to sponsor or they will refund your donations if that's what you would like to do. You can see the other children waiting for sponsors here. If you decide to choose another child to sponsor then Compassion will be able to move the funds over to that child's support on your account.
