Is there a Compassion Center near Bungoma in the Western Province of Kenya? There was an orphanage/school at Rehema that recently folded due to some fraudulent practices of the directors and there are many children now without homes or consistent food to eat. A friend I met a few years ago there has contacted me asking for help. Her children attended the school. I'm hoping to help her find a place like Compassion to give her some relief.

Hi Courtney! We have a few centers to the west of  Bungoma. Please email socialmedia@compassion.com and we may be able to give you some more information on these centers. Your friend would need to bring these children to the nearest Compassion student center and ask that they be registered. Each center is given a quota of the number of children they may register each year and they have several different need factors that they are looking for in the children they register. I cannot guarantee that they will be registered but I can give you more information to pursue that possibility.

Are there any Compassion centers located in Lima, Peru, or is it just the main office?

Thank you! I am going on a mission trip with my church this summer to Lima, and I am hoping to see my little girls again on a custom visit. However, I have never actually visited a center before, and I would really love to do that, too. Neither of them live in Lima. Would that be aloud, or can I only do one or the other?

Marissa, yes, you may be able to visit a center in Lima (where you do not sponsor) while you are there for your custom visit. Please mention this when you are applying for the custom visit and our visits team will work with you to make it happen. :)

Marissa, there is actually a letter on it's way to you from Licelis! :) There are no letters yet from Johan but there might be one in processing and I pray you receive one very soon!
