My family is financially struggling right now we haven't been able to make a payment the last couple of months. :( I do not want to cancel my sponsorship but I have no way to get caught up right now and I don't know what I can do?

Is there anything compassion can help with to get us through the summer months? We have some job transition going on and we will be stabilized again by August, or so.

I appreciate any help you can provide. I love this program and do not want to let our little guy down.

Thanks so much!

Hi Janay! I'm so happy you want to keep up your sponsorship! :) Compassion is able to cover your sponsorship for up to 3 months and then reduce your monthly payment to $19. I hope this is able to help you, and the Compassion employees will be able to help you with this soon! Keep serving Christ through this amazing ministry! :)

Hi Janay! I am so sorry to hear that your family is in such a tough situation right now but we would be happy to help any way we can! As Elizabeth mentioned, we can cover the missed months of support and then lower your support amount to $19 for six months. Please let me know if this would help. If not, let us know and we can make your child available for another sponsor. We've made a commitment to him no matter what so please know that even if you have to cancel your sponsorship of him, he will remain in our program until we are able to find another sponsor.

I don't want to stop helping. If compassion could help get me caught up I could do the $19 for six months starting in August. Does that work? I so appreciate the help. Thank you!

Janay, I just saw this post after already responding to a post you made on another conversation through this forum. I updated your account so that your support is current through the end of July. I will go ahead and also reduce your rate to $19 for six months beginning in August. I'm so glad that we're able to help you out and I pray that things only improve for you from here!
