How Compassion Helps
In the Fortaleza region of Brazil, drought and famine ravage the area for six months of the year. Five Compassion centers in this region serve more than 1,300 children. The centers ensure that each child receives a nutritious meal while attending the church-run program.
But kitchen facilities at these centers were cramped and inadequate. Through the Infrastructure program, Compassion has renovated the kitchens at these partner churches, ensuring that meals are prepared in sanitary, healthy environments.
