How many people sponsor my child, as I have received what is a mass produced picture of him. If there is multiple sponsors, and he is truly not "my child I sponsor" then I am not comfortable with compassion international. Please clarify.

Hi Gina,
Only you sponsor your child. Compassion works so that there is a one-to-one relationship between you and that child. The child loves you and prays for you, and loves to get your letters. I became a sponsor in 2002 and met the girl that I sponsored on a sponsor trip to Honduras. I later sponsored three more children and met all of them too! I promise that it's not just a picture - that is a real child who you are a sponsor and mentor for.

I'm sorry you're confused! Can you clarify what you mean by a mass produced picture of your child? We do take a picture of your child and print a copy of it for you to see. This picture is updated every two years.
I can assure you that you are your child's only sponsor. Compassion's sponsorship model is one to one- one sponsor to one child.
