On my sponsorships page under the "Learn more about Hamad" heading the first tab saye it was updated in 2014, the other two say they were updated in 2011. Can this information be made more current, please? Also is there any chance to have a photo of Hamad and his family as well as a new photo of him by himself?

Hi Jim!  Every child's photo and information is updated every two years.  That is the date given on the first 'child information' tab you referenced.  Therefore, Hamad should be due for an update once the 'information last updated' reaches the two year mark.  If it reaches 26 months without an update, you can call Compassion and they will put in an inquiry with the center to have them take a new photo of the child.  The other two tabs, 'child development center' and 'community,' are only updated on an as needed basis, which is why they haven't been updated since 2011.  Basically that information will only be updated if there is a noteworthy change in the community/project.

Compassion does not automatically keep family photos on file.  However, you can ask Hamad for a picture of his family and he may send you one (assuming he has one).  Or, if you give a family gift over $60 (the threshold to be guaranteed a picture of the child with the gift) the family may be present in the photo as well.

Hi Jim! Thank you for being such an encouragement and blessing to Hamad for the last two and a half years! Everything Emily said is correct. The only thing I am going to add is that his information was last updated in July 2014, which means it should now be updated again by September 2016. I know you must be eager to see how much he has grown!
