Hi, I just signed in to make a payment for my sponsored child Sara and it says I'm not sponsoring any children at this time. I read the emails about how Compassion might lose funding for the children in India (where Sara is) but I don't remember seeing any emails confirming that this is the actual case. I've been sponsoring her since she was a very young child and have been having correspondence with her for many years. I'd be sad to think I didn't get to say goodbye. I'm hoping this is just a glitch?? If not and I can no longer sponsor her can I at least send a letter to her through you? It doesn't seem right that I wouldn't be able to explain to her why I can no longer write. Thank you.

Kristin, I am deeply sorry that you have not received the emails and mailings that we have sent about India :(. My heart breaks for you and your sweet Sara. Regrettably, after months of concerted prayer and attempts to resolve matters with the India government, we are still not allowed to send funds into the country. These restrictions are preventing us from disbursing funds to our sponsored children and our in-country staff. As a result, our funds are now depleted. Without funds, we were simply no longer be able to operate after March 15th. I apologize as you definitely should've received multiple emails about this as well as a letter in the mail :(. I am sending you an email right now with more information. Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention so we may help you!
