How do I know my donation went through?
You will receive a confirmation email when your donation has been processed through the email that we have on file. Likewise, if your donation is not processed, you will receive an email informing you that the donation cannot be processed.
How do I get current updates on the child I sponsor?
A Redeemer's Friend staff member will contact you every couple of months to inform you of the child's progress. We also have social media profiles that allow us to share what is happening in the ministry more collectively.
How much of my money actually gets to the child?
Currently, about 50% actually gets to the child. The remaining 50% goes towards administrative needs. However, it is our goal and desire to have that percentage raise to 100% as our program grows and develops.
What donation amount is most helpful?
For every dollar that is received, our program receives around 3,000 Ariary. Every dollar counts to help feed our children and to assist their families. Therefore, every dollar is helpful. However, the most common donation is $50.
How do I send my sponsored child a gift?
As a sponsor, you will be notified when a team member is traveling to Madagascar. We will connect you to a list of items that would be appropriate to send your child, and happily deliver it upon arrival in Madagascar.
Can I write to my sponsored child?
Sponsors are encouraged to write to their sponsor children as often as they would like. We are capable of emailing your letter or hand mailing it upon arrival in Madagascar.
