Can I write to my sponsored child? Yes, our children love receiving letters from their sponsors. It means so much to a child and their caregiver to know there is someone on the other side of the world willing to support and encourage them. Your letters will be cherished by your child and the whole family. You can write to your child as often as you like – we suggest twice a year as a guideline. Please bear in mind that letters take a little while to get to Uganda, and then they need to be hand delivered as there is no door to door postal service.
