Chose a child that was my daughters age so we could grow with our compassion child Rebekah at our church in rural MO. Proudly saying that our church has 90+ sponsors for compassion kids. Anyway after writing her regularly we were not getting letters back. Then they updated her pic and mailed to me after our 1st year...it was a different child with same name and bday. Her family size changed from having siblings to having none. Rebekah never answers any questions in our letters. Always the same message. We were told we would get annual updated pics of her and if we send a gift over 60 we would get a pic of the child and her gift....we have not recieved that. My husband thinks maybe the center in Tanzania has been hijacked and we are being taken advantage of. None of my kids are interested in their sister in Christ because the letters are so vague with the same old...i am well, my studies are good, may you live long....the girl is 12 and says in her bio on the app that handwriting is her best subject. I would expect that she could tell me her favorite food, song, etc. Nothing. We send pics...she has never commented on them. What's really going on here? Am I helping this child or am I funding an illegal organization? I don't want to end our sponsorship and be wrong. I want to help this child. But if I'm right shame on you Compassion.
