Homelessness. Medical emergencies. Natural disaster. Your donation helps children when they need it most..
After natural disasters, children are at
the highest risk. They are most affected by unsafe water, skipped meals and time away from
school. These gifts will provide critical disaster relief to help families in poverty stay
healthy and safe as they recover from a crisis.
Poverty robs children of their health, education and hope for the future. When you sponsor a
child, you empower their local church, who understands their individual challenges, to walk
alongside them — releasing them from poverty in Jesus' name.
With support from generous friends like you, Compassion and our global church partners are fighting the food crisis. Our combined efforts have provided food for millions of families affected by the shortage. With your help, we will continue to act until each community we serve has sustainable food sources.
When you sponsor a child, you care for and
encourage them through prayer, letter writing and financial support. That support
empowers a local church to individually and holistically meet their needs in a loving,
safe community where they can learn, grow, play and dream.
When you become a sponsor, you are personally connected with a child who will know your
name and treasure the thought that you care about them.
Your support gives a child life-changing
opportunity to develop spiritually, emotionally, physically and economically. It's a
relationship more powerful than poverty — changing their life and yours!
Our holistic child development model is delivered
primarily through child sponsorship and is Christ-centered, church-driven and child-focused.
According to a poll of top development economists,
child sponsorship is THE most effective long-term development intervention for helping the
poor. It not only addresses immediate physical needs but also helps build self-esteem and
Our program is run entirely by local Christian
churches in Africa, Asia, Central America and South America. Why? Local churches are experts
on their communities' needs.
Through partnerships with local churches, we empower
people from each child's community to care for them so that, regardless of location, our
model is culturally appropriate and relevant. But in all cases, we provide love, education,
health care, nutrition and opportunities to hear the gospel.
Since the Rev. Everett Swanson first ministered
to orphans living on the streets of South Korea during the Korean War, Compassion has
expanded to serve over 25 different countries and over four million children. Through
frontline church partners, we provide children with the opportunity to rise above their
circumstances and become all God has created them to be.
“My life is true confirmation that God has a plan for each one of us and has
mysterious ways to fulfill the plan. The way God used sponsors through Compassion to
transform my life is one of those mysteries.”
