Send A Gift To Your Sponsored Child

COVID-19 Update: We are now able to send mail to some of our child sponsorship programs. Feel free to write to your sponsored child by using the form below or by mailing your letters to our office, and we will forward them when delivery resumes in each country.

Oftentimes, shipping internationally is very difficult due to various taxes and restrictions placed on foreign imports. For this reason, we are not able to allow sponsors to send children large packages through the mail.

Fortunately, you may send a few small, inexpensive items in a 6 inch by 9 inch envelope to your child. Be sure to label all items with the child’s ID number. Please send only one package a month. Your child greatly appreciates receiving anything from you, so enjoy being creative in what you send!

Please send all packages to the below address:

[Sponsored Child’s name and Child ID #]
c/o World Help Child Sponsorship Program
P.O. Box 501
Forest, VA 24551
As a reminder, please do not send cash to your sponsored child. If you wish to make an extra cash contribution to your child, please contact the World Help Child Sponsorship Department for more details.
