From the last letter we received from our sponsored child, it seems that his mother passed away. Is there anyway to know if that's true?

Our sponsored boy's name is Jude, and his mother's name is Eralyn. Part of Jude's last letter to us was translated, "Even though my mother was died God is always there for us." Our account still says that Eralyn is his primary caregiver.
We really loved getting to know Eralyn through the letters she wrote us since Jude was too little to write, and we're wondering what happened to her. Is there someway we can find out?
Thank you, Compassion team!

Hi, Tim and Jen! Thank you so much for reaching out to us with this concern for your sweet kiddo! You have the same information as we do on our end, so I'm going to send an inquiry to Jude's center and request some more information about this. When we hear back from them, we will reach out to you.
