Developing countries are often the world's most disaster-prone areas, and for many people disaster relief funds are their only source of hope and recovery. Disasters are especially hard on children, who are even more vulnerable than adults, so giving disaster relief through a child-focused organization like Compassion can be especially powerful. Children have little resources and no voice, so they are not able to recover from a disaster without your help.
Compassion's Disaster Relief fund provides children and their families with basic necessities like food, clean water, shelter, clothing, household items, and even medical care and trauma counseling.
Disaster relief and recovery is a long-term process, but Compassion's Disaster Relief program is helping children when they most desperately need it. It is a safety net for those living in countries with no other safety nets.
When you donate to Compassion's Disaster Relief fund, you can have confidence that your donation is helping children who are already facing life's toughest circumstances. Your gift can help make life just a bit easier for them.
In Compassion regions, we help children and families get back on their feet after a natural disaster strikes.
In developing countries, children often bear the brunt of natural and man-caused emergencies. Amid earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, wars and conflicts, donating to the Disaster Relief fund has been used to:
In times of disaster, children living in poverty are the most vulnerable and they need immediate help. Your donation to disaster relief will help a child recover physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

The Philippines are accustomed to strong storms, with an average of 10 typhoons hitting land each year. Super Typhoon Haiyan, however, would be anything but average.
In the blink of a storm, more than 4,000 families of sponsored children were left without homes and without food. Compassion workers focused on relief first – immediate needs such as food and water. In the following months, Compassion focused on restoring lives with counseling, medical aid and income-generating assistance for families.
Because of donations to the Disaster Relief Fund, Compassion was able to help over 6,500 in the months following Typhoon Haiyan. Your support to this fund means hope in the middle of the darkest storms!
