I sent Sintiyio Pooyuo (KE3680126) $100 six months ago and I haven't gotten a letter regarding this.  Could you please make sure she got the money.  Thanks.  Laura

Laura, first off, thank you so much for sending such a thoughtful and generous gift to Sintiyio! We are so grateful for you and your heart to bless her in such a tangible way. I'm very sorry that you haven't received an acknowledgement of this gift yet. I have sent an inquiry to our country office in Kenya to make sure she is doing alright and ensure she received your gift. We will let you know when we receive a response from them :).

Great news is I received a letter from her today.  However, it did not mention the gift, money, or anything in this reference.  It was the same template of words she writes in every single letter she sends me.  Laura

Laura, I am so sorry that this letter did not mention the gift. :( I noticed that there were two letters sent in the last few weeks. Once you have received both letters and please let me know whether or not they mention the gift and include a photo. If not, I will contact our field office in Kenya again to make sure that a letter is sent.

We also sent a monetary gift in August and it has been six months and we haven't received a letter stating that he received the gift. Although we did get a letter a while back, it didn't mention anything about a gift. Can you let us know if there is a letter on the way? Luzence Lakra (EI1770041) Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for your quick response! We received a letter in the mail today...yay! He did say thank you for the gift in the letter, although did not mention what was purchased with the gift. Is there a way to find out what he purchased with the gift without asking him directly? Thanks for all you do!

Katie, I am thrilled that you received the letter but the thank you portion should have included what was purchased with your gift. Did it include a photo? Would you be able to scan a copy of your letter to me so that I can send an inquiry to our office in East India regarding what was purchased? You can send it to socialmedia@compassion.com. Thank you so much for your grace and patience with us as we work to find out how your generous gift blessed this sweet boy.
