You can see through these Brazil facts that Brazil is a beautiful country with beautiful people. The people of Brazil are made up of various groups — Portuguese, Africans, Europeans, Middle Eastern, Asians, and indigenous peoples. These various people groups have freedom of religion, though most choose Catholicism. Evangelicals are also increasing in numbers throughout Brazil. One of the biggest cultural experiences is the love of soccer and many kids grow up with the dream of playing professionally.
Compassion has been working in Brazil since 1975. These Brazil facts and statistics provide a good picture of the reality of poverty and how child sponsorship through Compassion is making a difference.
Poverty is a problem in the country of Brazil but with your support, Compassion is working to change this. The Brazil facts tell a difficult story, but Compassion is bringing hope in the midst of the difficulties. Our programs are changing the statistics one child at a time.
Don’t let the hopelessness of poverty discourage you. You can make a difference to a child in Brazil today! When you sponsor a child in need, your sponsorship meets physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of a child living in poverty in Brazil. Your sponsored child will receive urgent medical care, food, clean water, educational opportunities, a Bible, life-skills training, and an opportunity to hear about Jesus.
All of these essential items are provided within the ministry of a local church that is already present in the child’s community in Brazil. You are helping nurture your sponsored child and connect that child to a local church. With your help, we’re hoping it won’t be long before poverty isn’t even included in information about Brazil!
