Hello! I received a letter today asking me to donate to my child's Christmas program. The problem is, I didn't know I had a child. You see, I originally signed up last December and got a boy named Jarvan Ochieng. But in March or April (possibly later than that), I received a letter saying he had moved away from the Compassion area. I was asked if I could sponsor another child by the name of Wiclif Mugambi Munene, but I have not responded that I will take him yet. Apparently though, according to the letter, I am now sponsoring a child named Eric Kamau Njoroge? I have never heard of him nor seen his pictures/bios. So, I'm just confused. Please let me know what's going on. Thank you.

I'm sorry for the confusion, Kellye. It looks like we sent you Eric's information when Jarvan left our program in June. I'm not sure how you got Wycliff's information, but I don't see him on your account or ever linked to your account. When a child leaves our program, we send you another child to consider sponsoring. We ask that you contact us within six weeks if you are not interested in sponsoring another child. After that time period, the child is accepted onto your account. If you're not interested in sponsoring Eric, please do let us know by email or phone ASAP so we can make him available for another sponsor.
