How to communicate with your sponsored child without leaving your home

We can't thank our amazing child sponsors enough or express how much you mean to your sponsored children. Through your sponsorship, you are providing your sponsored child with a great education, regular meals, essential healthcare and, if needed, a comfortable home and loving parents. This support is giving your sponsored child all the care they need to realise their potential and become who they are created to be. 

We want every child to know they have people that love and care about them. As a sponsor you can help your child feel loved, special and part of a wider family by communicating with them and sending them gifts. And you can do this all from the comfort of your own home. Here’s how:

1. Email your sponsored child 

The best way to communicate with your sponsored child at this time is by email and it’s quick, easy and cost effective. Moreover, our kids love to receive an email from their sponsor as it helps them learn to use technology. Your email will be a great encouragement and reminder that you are thinking of your sponsored child and after some weeks you will receive an email reply. 

Send your email message to and include your child’s details in the subject line. 

2. Donate to buy your sponsored child a gift 

If you would like to send a gift to your child for their birthday or just because, the quickest way to do this is to give a monetary gift to your sponsored child online. A monetary gift of between £10-£25 will be used to buy a gift that your child wants or needs and will help them feel loved and special. Many of our children around the world had never received a birthday gift before joining Stand by Me and as a result being given a gift from their sponsor will bring them so much joy. 

Give a gift to your sponsored child by donating online here. 

Please bear in mind it may take longer than usual to receive a reply to your email/donation while our projects safeguard our children and staff due to COVID-19. If you have any questions about your sponsorship or communicating with your child please get in touch on 01708 442271. 

Stand by... almost there...
