Good morning,

I'm concerned about one of my girls, Anahi Kelly Gomes de Cerqueira (BR075300170).  About a year ago Anahi's monitor, Joselia, reported that she had been sick (with worms, I believe), but was recovering.  Just the other day another monitor, Elizabete, reported that she doesn't often come to the project because she has moved into the country.  And yesterday a new photo of her was posted on the website, not more than a year after the last one.  I have two concerns.  The first is that Anahi isn't looking as healthy in this last picture as she did in the other two.  She seems much thinner, appears to lack muscle tone, and may have lost one or more of her top front teeth.  I know it's difficult to judge a child's health on a single photo, but I wonder if there is a way to check in on her current health.  The second concern--one dear to my heart--is whether or not I will be able to continue to sponsor Anahi if she has moved.  I love her dearly and would be broken-hearted to find she had moved into an area without access to a Compassion project.

Thanks for helping with these concerns,
Kristin Collins

Hello, Kristin! Thank you so much for coming to us with these concerns, and I'm so sorry for any worries you've been facing regarding the health of your sweet Anahi (BR057300170). Due to health and privacy regulations, we are not able to share specific information regarding the status of your child’s health. I know this is hard to hear, but please know the project staff love Anahi and are ensuring she is getting the support and medical attention that is needed.  I encourage you to write your child and ask these specific questions you have. To help ensure your questions are not missed, it’s helpful to number and highlight each question. If Anahi feels comfortable sharing this information she will in her letters, and if not, prayer is a great resource.

In regards to your being able to continue sponsoring her, that is not anything to worry about as of right now. She is still attending the center, just not as often as some of the other kids (maybe she is going once a week instead of twice, or something like that), and she has not recently moved; in looking at her letter where she mentions she lives in the countryside, it looks like she has always lived there, and was just telling you about her house.

I hope this response helps soothe some of your fears, and we would be happy to answer any other questions you have!
