Surgeries for children in poverty are needed all over the world. Compassion helps with situations that include surgery, vision and hearing issues, prosthetic limbs, wheelchairs, trauma counseling, special dental needs and funeral expenses.

PROVIDING TREATMENT
FOR CHILDREN'S MEDICAL EMERGENCIES

Living in poverty is difficult enough. But families can be devastated when severe conditions like cancer, heart disease or traumatic injury occur and no money is available for treatment.

Compassion steps in to help with situations that include surgery, vision and hearing issues, prosthetic limbs, wheelchairs, trauma counseling, special dental needs and funeral expenses.

Our assistance covers medical needs but also helps individuals continue functioning. Children can also stay with their families as they recover.

How Compassion Helps

MedicalAssistImage1 375x155

Ammy was born with retinoblastoma, a malignant, metastatic cancer. Without surgery to remove her eyes, the cancer would spread to her brain and she would not make it to her first birthday.

When Ammy was 8 weeks old, surgeons removed both of her eyes. Her recovery was slow and painful, and her family fell deep into debt. Then her mother Lourdes discovered Compassion and saw how the staff looked into her daughter's face with no disgust or fear.

Compassion workers arranged for Ammy to be fitted with prosthetic eyes. The medical program covered Ammy's bills, and a month later Lourdes held Ammy in her arms, staring in wonder at her daughter's blinking brown eyes.
