What happens when I sponsor a child? When you become one of our child sponsors, you are contributing to the care of all our child patients, but will build a relationship with one child in particular. This ensures that no child in our care will receive more or less support than others. When you sponsor a child in our care, you will receive a welcome pack which will tell you all about the children in our care, as well as the work we as a charity are doing to support these children. Around 8 weeks after you register to be a sponsor, you will receive a letter or drawing from one of our child patients. You will also receive a Christmas greetings card and an annual progress update on the child, as well as information about our wider work at Copaceni.
