Compassion Child Sponsorship will increase to £21.00 per month from
July 2009 for existing sponsors. The reason for this increase is due to
inflation and rising food costs. We believe that we cannot compromise on
support. Any sponsor who would find it difficult to increase their payment will
be able to continue to pay at the current £18.00 sponsorship rate.
Please see Ty Butler if you would like to sponsor a child.
