Chairman Royce on the hearing said: “In three weeks, Compassion International – which provides critical tutoring, nutrition and medical services to children in India – could be shut down because of Indian government regulators.  It is my hope that by bringing attention to this issue, 145,000 children will not be tragically denied services they desperately need.  And then, relations between the two countries will be even stronger.”
