I was wondering if any of my kids live in an area where they can have livestock? I would love to send them some, but if they live in a city that wouldn't work too well. also, are any of my kids siblings in the program? I know it is up to the field office, but I was just curious. even if they are currently being sponsored.

Anna, thank you so much for your desire to bless your children with livestock and for wanting to send them gifts that will benefit them best. Many of your children live in areas that are either mountainous like in Thailand or are plains and flat lands like your children in Bangladesh and Brazil. Jhonny in Colombia lives in a very coastal area but depending on where his home is located, it's possible that some type of animal could be beneficial. The area that Enger is in the Dominican Republic is forested but they do eat a lot of chicken. Regrettably, we do not have information on the specific address of the house that they live in or if livestock would benefit the family and so I cannot tell you if their home would be in a neighborhood that would allow for them to own livestock. For this reason, please rest assured that you can ask that the money be spent on an animal, but ultimately the family will be able decide how to use the money (with the help of Compassion staff) depending on if they do live in a more rural area or an area that is more city than land. You can be encouraged that your gift may be used for something they need more if an animal isn't practical for them. Each year, you can send $10 to $100 as a birthday gift, $10 to $100 as a general gift, and $25 to $1,000 as a family gift. A family gift might be the best option when making a suggestion to provide livestock for your child's family.

I have also send you an email with information on each of your child's siblings and whether or not they are in the program.
