Visiting your sponsored child

During the pandemic, we have been unable to arrange any field visits for sponsors. The possibility to visit is now slowly starting to open up again. A visit must always be arranged through Compassion. If you are interested in visiting your sponsored child, you are welcome to email us at

Every year, several of our sponsors go on a visit and find meeting their sponsored child to be life changing. The day you spend with your sponsored child will provide you with a unique insight into their situation, culture and community. Plus, your will see first-hand the difference your sponsorship is making.
