We sent Sterson Bonhomme, our sponsored boy in Haiti, a family gift of $200 in August 2018.  We haven't heard any mention of it since.  We don't know if he and his mother received it, or if so, what was bought with it, and we have no photo.  We received a note and photo from each of our other three for theirs, but not from Sterson.  Please check on this for us.  Thank you so much!

Hi Mitchel and Kathleen! I'm sorry that you haven't received a letter and photo for your generous gift. I know how special those are. I have sent an inquiry to the national office in Haiti regarding this. It can take up to 45 days to receive a response on an inquiry, so I really appreciate your patience while we work to resolve this.

No problem, Leah.  Thanks for your help.  We're accustomed to this child's project being challenged with correspondence and photos.  That area of Haiti was hit hard several months ago and is likely having a tough time recovering any normalcy.  We're concerned to know what benefit he and his mother received from the gift but don't want to put undue pressure on the people who are trying to care for him and the other children.  We appreciate your inquiry.
