What can/can't you send to your sponsored child? I sent balloons to Yazuri, but that was not allowed.

Hi Sierra, only paper based items are allowed since Compassion sends the items as documents to the child development centers to avoid customs holding back the whole batch to check each item and impose duty costs. Please refer to the articles (links below) and also the readers' comments after the article for ideas of what to send.
