You are welcome to send letters to your sponsored child. Feel free to send him/her letters, a Christmas or birthday card. The children themselves decide whether they wish to communicate with their sponsor. Some children wish to answer and they thus receive all the help they need to write a letter.
In order to facilitate the exchange, we suggest you writing in English or in one of the languages of the country the child lives in.
