Hello! I gave a family gift of $1000 last November 2017 to my sponsor child's family. I can see the gift in my account, so I'm assuming the family would have received it by now? I haven't received a letter/photo so I do not know. Is there any way Compassion can look into this for me and let me know if the family has received the gift? While not necessary, it would also be nice to know how my sponsor child's family was able to use this gift. Thank you! :)

Hello Christina, I am sorry to hear that you haven't received a letter and photo for the generous family gift that your sent to Niyigena. I do show that the gift was delivered to her family and I am sure that they were very appreciative for your gift. However, I do want to ensure that you are able to find out what the family was able to purchase with this gift. For this reason, I have sent a request and have asked to have Niyigena write a letter and for the child development center to include a photo for you. This may take a little time for us to receive and pass along, but we will get you that letter with photo as quickly as possible. :-)

Wow, thank you for responding so fast! I am so happy that they have received the gift! Thank you for letting me know. I hope it does not put pressure on her or her center to send a photo. It will definitely be wonderful to see what they have been able to purchase! I received a photo last fall of Niyigena and her goat which she bought with a birthday gift I previously sent, and it's just so heartwarming to know that she was able to purchase something she needs. Her goat has since had two babies. :)  The photo has been on my refrigerator ever since! I will patiently wait for a letter/photo for the family gift. Thank you again for answering my questions! :)
