Hello. I am new (2 weeks old :-) to Compassion/sponsoring and feel so blessed to be able to sponsor the development 2 sweet girls, one in Nicaragua and one in Kenya. Can I request information from the field concerning my girls' family greatest need? For instance, if the family in Kenya needs an income producing animal or seeds, then I would like to give that give via the appropriate dollar amount at a time that corresponds with the child's birthday or at Christmas. If there are dire needs, such as for a medical visit, I would like a field inquiry to tell me this also. If field inquiries are a possibility, how can I request such and how often can these "checks" on the family be provided?

Hi Mary! Welcome to the Compassion family! You are welcome to send a monetary family gift to your sponsored child and their family in any amount between $25-$2,000 each year. Once the gift is received, the staff will take the family to the market and help them purchase what they need. 100% of your gift will be given to the family. Unfortunately, we are not able to check to see what the family needs before you send a gift since they are able to choose what they need once they receive the gift.
