Step into the home of a Compassion-supported child and it‚Äôs not unusual to find a picture of their sponsor proudly displayed on the wall, or tucked away in a box with their most precious possessions.
Just as we love receiving a new picture of our sponsored children, they also get excited when they receive a photo of us.
Here‚Äôs just a few ways your photos are bringing joy ‚Ä¶
Jackline in Ecuador has made a frame for her sponsor‚Äôs photo. Knowing there‚Äôs a family across the world that cares and prays for her has boosted her confidence.
Joel delights in his two sponsors. With his big smile you‚Äôd never guess that Joel was malnourished when he joined the Compassion programme.
In Burkina Faso, Tiendrebeogo loves the photo of the youth group who sponsor her. Through their letters, they share about the similarities and differences between their schools, hobbies and favourite foods.
Jennylin lives with five other family members in this one room house in the Philippines. Her sponsor‚Äôs words of encouragement have been particularly important, ‚ÄúThey always write to me and I always write to them. They‚Äôve stuck with me all this time and I appreciate that so much.‚ÄĚ

Alcha in Burkina Faso keeps all her letters and photographs safely in a shoe box. She has built a beautiful friendship with her sponsor. Soon she will need a bigger box to store her letters!

Watson keeps his letters safely in a green folder and is often found flipping through, re-reading the words of love and encouragement.
Nathnael and his grandmother keep his letters and photographs safely in an old leather bag. ‚ÄúHis sponsor might come one day and I want to show them proudly that we have each of their letters. For me it‚Äôs a way of respect,‚ÄĚ says Nathnael‚Äôs grandmother.
