Hello
I am a South African. I think your organization is awesome and I would like to sponsor a child in Africa. However, I don't think giving a monthly donation in US dollars that will be redirected to Africa anyway is the most economic way for me to contribute. Do you perhaps have partner organizations in RSA or Africa that I can support?

Hi Janneke! Wow, thank you so much for your desire to sponsor a child with our ministry! We are so humbled by your generosity and heart to impact a child's life! :)

Regrettably, we do not have a branch in Africa at this time and thus do not have a way for you to donate in Rand or Euro. I am so very sorry for this inconvenience. If you want to sponsor a child with our USA office, all donations need to be received in US dollars. Please visit our website to sponsor a child in Africa if you decide you'd like to do so. Let me know if you have any other questions or need assistance along the way!

Janneke, I was watching this with interest because I know people do sponsor from Africa. You might want to sponsor through one of the other country sites. I am in the US but Canada might be slightly better for you if they allow foreign sponsorships because they are sending letters digitally now and I understand the letters come much more quickly! I am hoping the US site will start that, too! Are you on Facebook? I will look for you and if I can find you send a friend request, just decline if you don't feel comfortable, I won't have hurt feelings. I would ask you to look for me but unfortunately my name is pretty common! Thanks so much for wanting to sponsor with Compassion! I have been sponsoring for over 13 years and love this organization!

Also, Janneke, if it would be easier for you to send a wire to us through your bank, you are welcome to do so. If you interested in this, please email socialmedia@compassion.com for banking details.
