Review for Unbound, Kansas City, KS, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

As a +20 year donor and a sponsor of a child in the Philipines, I was EXTREMELY upset when my sponsored child left the program and CFCA refused to forward my address to him. In fact, I was shocked to learn that all these years, CFCA had blacked out my address so my child couldn't see it. Did they ever give him my real name? Did they confiscate the pictures I sent? I was never able to visit the Philippines due to health problems and finances, but I wonder how CFCA handled visits to the missions. Did they muzzle the sponsors to keep them from telling the children where they lived?

My child has now supposedly graduated from school and gone to work for a living. He's old enough and mature enough to decide if he ever wants to contact me again, but he won't be able to, because CFCA won't give him my address. And I can't contact him, because they won't give me his address.

CFCA encourages sponsors to get involved in the lives of the children, then they cut the strings cold turkey and expect sponsors to be happy about it! I think if other sponsors knew this was going on, they wouldn't be too happy either.
