The address is

ATTN: Child Correspondence Dept.
Compassion International
Colorado Springs, CO 80997-0004

On the letter include your child's name and their system number which you should have received. It usually starts with a country code plus a numerical sequence.

My School is sponsoring a child and I would like to write, but I can't get find a system number on the letter the child sent us. Is it the
PL # or can you track him by name and country? I cannot get a response from anyone at the school that might know this info.

Cindy, your child's number will start with two letters followed by seven numbers. It should be listed next to your child's name on the letter.
