If she is still in the program or very recently departed you can send a gift.   Someone will probably answer you on here  but if you don't use the online features of "My Account" already it would probably be easiest to call the toll free number of the main Compassion office to give the gift.  Have your sponsor donor number located on the monthly statement ready because they will ask for that.  I hope you can get a gift to her, I know she will appreciate it!

Hi Crystal! First off, I want to encourage you that your child is welcome and encouraged by project staff to stay in Compassion's program during this time. If anything changes in your child's status, we will contact you. I see that you have been with your child since 2005 and have had the opportunity to build a relationship with her. Thank you for your faithful letter writing to her as your letters of encouragement will mean the world to her especially during this time. Our staff care deeply for your child and will help her through this process as best they can in providing resources, encouragement, and support for Upendo and her new baby. 

You are certainly welcome to send a gift to your child through the normal gift process whether that be online through your My Account or contacting us by phone like Denise mentioned above. You may also send a check to our office with your sponsor number and child reference number. You are always welcome to send one of the following gifts to your child: 

Birthday Gift $10-$100 
General Gift $10-$100
Family Gift $25-$1,000

Your gift will still take 2-3 months to reach your child. You may put a note on your gift description stating that you wish for it to be used to benefit she and her baby with their needs. Ultimately, our staff and your child will make a decision on what the gift will be used for as they go with the greatest need first. Thank you so much for wanting to bless her in such a tangible way right now!

Hi Vanessa! Thank you for wanting to bless Fatima and the new baby in such a tangible way! I have merged your inquiry with this conversation because someone recently asked this same question. You are certainly welcome to send one of the following monetary gift options that I mentioned in my comment to Crystal above. Please let me know if you have any other questions! :)
