Review for ChildFund International, Richmond, VA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

I have sponsored children through Christian Children's Fund - now ChildFund - for over 30 years. I was very sad when they shed their Christian identity. I tried to dialog with two of their staff members over the change when it happened and was extremely dissatisfied with the way they skirted my questions.

I still have three children sponsored with ChildFund, and I will continue to support them, but I will not replace them when they graduate from the program.

I sent $20 to a child for his birthday recently and he only received $16. That much of a bite out the gift is unacceptable to me, knowing how much value the money has overseas.

I have already begun to sponsor a child with World Vision, and my strategy is to transfer all my support to that organization over time.

I would make sure the children receive the full value of the gifts sponsors send.

Role:  General Member of the Public & Sponsored children for 30 years.
