The Indian government placed funding constraints upon Compassion from May 2016, preventing us from transferring funds to our local partners. As a result, we are unable to fund our programmes in India and have been forced to shut down. Compassion is not the only ministry impacted. More than 20,000 NGOs have had their charitable registrations revoked and 300 face similar restrictions.
After a year of not knowing how this would turn out, this is truly a tragic time for poor children in India. Please pray that the Indian authorities will be able to see the disaster that they are bringing on their own people, and reverse this terrible decision.
