My Girlfriend and I sponsor a child, Yeasera, but we have not received any letters from her in over 9 months. The letter on our account that is dated for December 7th had its date changed after we asked about not receiving any correspondence about a month ago. We write her once a month and don't expect to hear from her too frequently just because of the distance and stress but not hearing from her in 9 months and then having a letter's date changed after a complaint is very disheartening and has made us consider canceling our funding on this basis. Can anyone help?

Hey Shannon,

The sponsor number is 06417747. Yeasera's number is ET037600032. The account is under my girlfriends name, Anna Turbyfill. But, we both contribute and write there just doesn't seem to be a way to have multiple people on an account.

Nathan, it looks like the last letter from Yeasera was sent in September 2016. That is an incredibly long time to wait for a letter! I am so sorry you have had to wait so long but I am so glad you let us know! I have sent an inquiry to check on your child and make sure everything is alright. We have requested that Yeasera write another letter to you as soon as possible.
