We are just getting started with our sponsor child. The card we took home lists his name as Jan Jan, but his profile says its David. How do I know what to call him?

Hello Katie! Welcome to the Compassion family! We are so grateful for your support. I am sorry for the confusion regarding your sponsored child's name. His birth name is David, however, his preferred name is, Jan Jan. When you write to him, we suggest calling him by his preferred name, Jan Jan. :-)
