Starving Children: A Daily Fight for Survival

starving children

Compassion International is a holistic child development organization addressing a wide range of poverty-related issues, from illiteracy to starving children to lack of income-generating skills. Because of the complexity of poverty, it cannot be fixed by simply throwing money at it. However, first addressing the physical needs, especially those faced by starving children, is a critical step in helping a child understand a life-changing truth – that they are deeply loved by God.

Starving children are in a daily fight for survival and Compassion is on the front lines of this fight. As a part of its program, Compassion offers supplementary food to children who desperately need it. This is just one aspect of a multi-dimensional approach to fighting poverty.

Feeding all the world’s starving children won’t eliminate poverty – it’s much more complex than that. Poverty must be addressed on a variety of levels and Compassion does just this, offering help in social, economic, and spiritual areas as well as physical.

Sponsor a child today and be a part of this life-changing ministry. While you may not be able to provide for every one of the world’s starving children, you CAN make a different for one child.
