1. FINANCIAL SUPPORT (continued from previous page)
ii. Through Western Union:
By Western Union through: a) phone using a credit or debit card by calling a Western Union phone money transfer number posted online, telephone directory or elsewhere for your region, or b) online transfer using a credit or debit card, or c) by sending through your nearest Western Union agent or office.
i.a) Phone using a credit or debit card
Western Unionís website, http://www.westernunion.com or your regional telephone directory Yellow Pages have an official number for making phone transfers. For example, in the United States it is 1-800-CALL-CASH (1-800-225-5227) nationwide.
i.b) Online money transfer using a credit or debit card
This is through Western Unionís website, http://www.westernunion.com. They require users to create an account at their secure server. This is probably intended to protect users from unauthorized use of their bank cards. A confirmation email will be sent to you and in many cases they may require you to verify your transfer by calling them using your official number that is part of your Western Union account profile. This may change after a while of using your account, since your records become more verifiable in their system.
i. c) Through your nearest Western Union agent or office
Your financial support can also be sent through your nearest Western Union agent or office. A nearest location can be found online or in a local telephone book. An agent can be a store, salon, or any institution that is authorized by Western Union to provide their services.
In all three methods there is a transfer fee for each transaction, depending on the amount you are sending. Please use the our given address on the contact page for any other address details required.
A critical reminder is that please contact CHILDHOPE-ZAMBIA
after every money transfer you make. You can send an email
or call. Without informing CHILDHOPE-ZAMBIA, the funds will
not be issued. The following are the details the collection
office of Western Union will require from CHILDHOPE-ZAMBIA:
*Full senderís name
*Amount and currency sent
*Test question used and answer to the test question (e.g. Name of a charity missionary? Answer: Mother Theresa)
*The assigned Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) by Western Union -usually an optional requirement
Please email the above details or call CHILDHOPE-ZAMBIA after
making a transfer with Western Union. It may be worthwhile

iii. Wire transfer:
Another method of sending your support is thorough wire transfer.
Unfortunately a lot of online scams have painted a bad picture
about wire transfers. Otherwise wire transfers are convenient
since they involve your bank and CHILDHOPE-ZAMBIAís bank making
a transaction. You can speak to your bank official about how
to make a wire transfer. Once you are familiar with this you
can contact CHILDHOPE-ZAMBIA to send you its account details.

is still financially incapable of compensating volunteers,
leave alone effectively supporting the children.
