HI Sheniah! I'm sorry to hear that money has been so tight for you. As you requested, I have covered your support through the end of November. Please let us know in December how you are doing as we have some other options that may be able to help. Also, you are still sponsoring Viviana, and she would love to hear from you! Please feel free to continue sending her encouraging letters during this time. God bless and I sincerely hope things turn up for you over the next few months. :)

I'm in college right now, and it's been crazy with paying for bills and loans of late. I can't afford to sponsor my child anymore, and I've already got two late fees. I feel bad having to cancel, but I really can't afford it right now.

Oh Elizabeth, I am so sorry fiances are a struggle for you right now! I was in the same place when I was in college a few years ago! If it would help you, I would love to cover your donations through October, including the missed months. I can also reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month from November through April if that would help you out. I know your child (who I think is Umutoni Aida in Rwanda?) has been blessed to have your sponsorship. Let me know if that will help you. I'm praying for God to calm your heart and take care of your finances. College is already stressful. Having financial struggles never makes it easier.

Oh Lois, I am sorry you are having to make this decision! You have been such a blessing to Edwin and Livetha for many, many years. If it would help, I have several options that might work for you. I can remove the $7 Partners of Compassion commitment you have on your account. I can also cover your sponsorship for the months of September through November and reduce your rate to $19 a month per child from December through May. I can do that for both children, or we can remove one child and help you that way with the other child. If none of that helps you, I can end the sponsorship for both kids too. Let me know. I know it is a really hard decision to make, especially when you have been involved in their lives for so long!

Madison, I am so sorry that you are faced with such a difficult decision. It looks like you just called earlier today to make a donation and setup an automatic withdrawal. Please confirm whether you are still wanting to cancel. I'm not sure if you called and maybe were so distraught that you couldn't follow through with it. If that is the case, I would understand. If you would like some more privacy, please feel free to email us at socialmedia@compassion.com. We are happy to help you with whatever you need to do right now. I'm not sure if you saw this above but we are able to lower your rate starting in November (since you just paid up through then) to $19 for six months until April 2016. Please let me know if this would help. If not, let me know and I will make Norbert available for another sponsor.

Hi, I need to cancel my sponsorship of Cielo Melani Burga Canto: PE4390650. It's been such a blessing to be in her life, and it was a difficult decision, but I don't have the finances to sponsor her at this time. I also would like to request that you do not send me information on financial assistance. I hope you can find her another sponsor soon! Thank you very much!

We will still send Sourav's letters to you, and you can still send letters to him as well. If this would help you, please let us know.

Hi Bebe! I'm sorry to hear that you need to cancel but we can certainly help you if that's what you feel you need to do. I pray that everything is going alright for you and if it's due to financial struggles, that your situation improves quickly. I see that you just began your sponsorship of Safiatou in August. Because you started sponsoring her, I know that you must have a heart for children and we're so blessed that you have a desire to help a child through our program! If you're going through short term financial difficulties, we would be happy to assist you for a time so that you're able to continue your sponsorship. I understand that circumstances come up but if possible, we want to help you maintain the relationship you had hoped to build with your girl when you chose to sponsor her! 

Would it help you if we covered your support of Safiatou for the months of September through November and gave you a fresh start beginning again in December? If so, let me know and I'll update your account. If not, please respond here and I'll make your girl available for another sponsor.

I have been sponsoring Apon Roy (BD-257-0169; sponsor # 3644174-2) for a few months now, but my finances have changed drastically due to school and an internship. I am in my last year of college and have a demanding schedule that does not allow me to work more than one day a week. I do not want to end my sponsorship, but of course I cannot give money that I don't have. I was originally thinking of canceling my sponsorship, but after reading about the 3 month forgiveness and 6 month decrease, I think that option would work perfectly! I have not been feeling good about the prospect of canceling my sponsorship, and I am so happy to hear that there is another option.

Good morning, Lea! Wow, you're going to be busy this semester; we're more than happy to help you out so that you can continue sponsoring Apon! I've updated your account today so that your support is current through the end of November and then the reduced rate will begin in December for six months. Let us know if at the end of that six months, your situation still hasn't changed or you're still recovering from your semester and we're happy to work with you. Thank you for your hard work to continue your relationship with your boy and good luck with school!

Hi Limi! I'm so sorry you need to discontinue your support of Mianu and I pray that you're doing alright. Regrettably, you have reached our USA office and because you sponsor him through our office in Australia, I cannot access your account to update it. You will need to contact Compassion Australia to cancel your sponsorship. You can email them at compassion@compassion.com.au or call 1300 22 44 53 Mon to Fri, 9am - 5pm (AEST). God bless you!

Hi! I visited Honduras with World Gospel Outreach and had the opportunity to care for the children adopted by the organization. I would like to sponsor one of their children that I got to know this time, but cannot afford sponsoring two, so I'd like to please cancel my sponsorship of Eva Yolani Flores Urbina, ID: HO3600240. Thank you for your help and understanding!

Hi Silvie! I'm sorry to hear that you're no longer able to support Eva but it sounds like God really touched your heart for the project you visited and I completely respect if He's leading you to serve elsewhere at this time. As requested, I have made Eva available for another sponsor today. Thank you for the time that you blessed her life and please know you're always welcome to sponsor with us again in the future. 

God bless you and thank you for your continued heart for children!

Unfortunately I can no longer afford my compassion sponsorship, even after my sponsorship has been dropped down to $19/month. I'm a student and I'm working very few hours a week. Would I be able to cancel my sponsorship? :/

Brianna, I'm so sorry that we weren't able to relieve your support enough for you to continue supporting Hugo :(. Thank you so much for your sacrifice in really trying to maintain your relationship with him but we don't want this to burden you and we want you to do well in school and be able to take care of yourself. 

I have made Hugo available for another sponsor today. You're welcome to write him a final letter if you'd like! Please just write 'Final Letter' at the top and I know he'll love to hear from you one last time. Good luck finishing school and know that you're always welcome to sponsor again with us when you're financial situation improves, if you feel led to do so!

Can I please cancel my subscription? I made a list of my expenses today with the new lower income I am receiving and realized I will not be able to afford to support Dip Das at this time. I would really like another sponsor to be able to commit to him and take care of him. Please let me know. Thanks.

Abigail, we are happy to help you with whatever you need to do right now. Is this something that might turn around in three to nine months? If so, we would be happy to cover your support for three months and then lower your support amount to $19 for six months. Please let me know if this would help. If not, let me know and I'll make Alip available for another sponsor. In the mean time, I have stopped your automatic withdrawal.

I am recently engaged and a college student so I will need to cancel my sponsorship of Chanlee Rania. Wedding costs are starting to arise and marriage will also make it difficult to continue sponsoring. Please make him available to another sponsor so he can get the help he needs.

Hi Mackenzie! Congratulations on your recent engagement! I can imagine that amidst all the excitement in your life right now that money is tight and you need your future husband's support to continue with this. As you requested, I have made Ken available for another sponsor. Please let me know if I can help in any other way.

Hi Braxton! I am so sorry to hear you are struggling financially. I would love to help keep you connected to Bipin if possible. Compassion can cover your monthly donations through the rest of the year and reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month beginning in January and continue through June 2016. Please let  me know if this would be helpful to you. I am praying that your financial situation would improve for you soon!

After spending some time in prayer over the last week, I need to cancel my sponsorship for Mercy. I'm confident that the Lord will provide someone else to take up her sponsorship very quickly. Thank you for all you do to care for children around the world.

April, I'm so encouraged that you are seeking God in this situation and have been praying for Mercy. Thank you so much for sponsoring this young girl for over a year now! If you are feeling led to discontinue your support, we certainly respect your decision. Is there anything that we could have done to serve you better? 

You hadn't mentioned why you were wanting to discontinue and I noticed that you were giving extra each month towards our Highly Vulnerable Children's Fund. I apologize as I don't know your specific situation, but if it's due to financial difficulties that you need to cancel and you think it will be short term, we'd be happy to help you out for a time and remove your extra giving so that your rate is reduced permanently. 

If you're interested in maintaining your relationship with Mercy, please let me know and I'm happy to help you. If not, I will make Mercy available for another sponsor and we are so grateful for the love you poured into her life!

I had been sensing The Lord leading me for some time to give her over to someone else. It was very difficult to let go of her. I don't really know why He led me to do so, I just know I needed to obey and trust that He would adequately provide for her. I will certainly continue to pray for her as she has touched my heart deeply.

Victoria, I'm so sorry for the struggle that the people in your country are going through and my heart breaks that you're also feeling the impact. We serve an incredible God who loves to care and provide for his beloved children. I pray that you would experience His love and faithfulness during this difficult time. 

As requested, I have made Warunee available for another sponsor today. I know this must have been difficult for you but I understand that you're unable to continue. We are so grateful for the time that you supported this young lady and I know she was so very blessed by you. Thank you for your continued love and prayers for her! God bless you and know that you're always welcome to sponsor again in the future should you ever feel led to do so and should your situation improve.

I sadly need to cancel my sponsorships of Zingruatmawi Rawm (BD5061128) and Wendy Ines Maritza Cordova Pache (GU4520002). It's been such a blessing to write and get to know them both, and it was a difficult decision, but we are dropping to a one income household and expecting our first baby next month and don't have the finances to sponsor them at this time. I also would like to request that you do not send me information on financial assistance. I'm praying for the day when we are able to continue to support another beautiful child, but sadly that is not at this time. I hope you can find both of those beautiful girls another sponsor soon! Thank you very much!

Thank you so much for all that you have done for these two precious girls over the years! God bless you!

Hi Maddie. I am so sorry you are unable to continue supporting your child. I know it must be heartbreaking! I can absolutely make him or her available to another sponsor, but we do have a few options that may help you be able to continue before I take him/her off. Compassion can cover three months of sponsorship completely for you and reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month for up to six months. If these options would help, please let me know. If you still need me to remove him from your account, I will do so. We will be praying for you as you walk through this financial struggle.

Hi Zillery. I am so sorry you are unable to continue supporting Yeimi. I know it must be heartbreaking for you!

Compassion can cover three months of sponsorship completely for you and reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month for up to six months. That means that I could cover October through December donations completely and reduce to $19 a month from January to June. If these options would help, please let me know.

Hi Eric, I am so sorry that you are going through such financial stress and difficulties. I will be praying for God to bring you peace and for your situation to get better soon. I have made Abdul available for another sponsor at this time. Thank you for committing to support him while you were able to. Even though it was cut short, you have impacted his life already. If you are able to support another child in the future, we would be blessed to partner with you again.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances I need to make John (sponsor ID 3564232) available to another sponsor. Although I wish I could agree to one of the other options I do not know how long my finances will be in this state. John and his family will be in my prayers.
