Hi Alexia! Yes, you can absolutely still continue to sponsor your child. In fact, we can actually move your sponsorship over to one of our partner country offices in Europe if it would be easier to pay in one of their currencies instead of continuing with the US dollar. If you'd like to talk more about that option, let me know where you are moving to and I can help you get set up with one of those offices and have the sponsorship transferred over! You aren't required to do this at all, but we do find that it is helpful for some sponsors :).

I am moving to Sweden. I have read about a partner office in Norway but I don’t how the banking situation works. Such as, would I need a bank account in Norway to pull funds from etc. This permanent move will be in about 6 months time so I have a bit of time, just wanted to prepare for any complications that may arise from my move. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Our Norden office does actually take care of Norway and Sweden sponsors, Alexia :). You are welcome to move your sponsorship to their office, but you certainly do not have to either. Sometimes it is just easier for sponsors to do that depending on the currency they are going to be paid in at a new job in that country. If you'd like to discuss the option with their office just to see if it would be a good fit, you can email them at: info@compassion.se. It does take a few months usually to get a sponsor account fully transferred over to a new partner country but there is still plenty of time right now. You just let me know if you end up deciding that is what you'd like to do!
