I really want to know how long it will take. Also when will I get a new picture of him? I have the same picture and I would like an updated pic. Thank you!

Hi Peter! I would be happy to answer these questions for you! Would you please provide me with your sponsor number? I couldn't find an account associated with the email address you gave us.

Peter, it can take up to four months to receive the first letter from your child. Since you began your sponsorship at the end of December, you can expect to receive a letter from Wily by the end of April. Compassion updates child photos every 18-24 months. Wily's photo was just taken in November 2018, meaning you will receive a new photo of him around November 2020.
