Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Just imagine how exciting it will be when one day you get to heaven and your sponsored child is there with you because you chose to sponsor him or her.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.

Help Children in Need

Child sponsorship through Compassion is an effective way to help children in need.

Child sponsorship is an excellent way to help children because you will be giving a child hope for the future and for all eternity. As a sponsor, you will also be able to correspond with your child and develop a close relationship. Your child will be deeply encouraged by your love and care. The children are very thankful, and many pray for their sponsors daily. Also, many sponsors eventually meet their children in their native countries!

You would have a hard time finding opportunities to help children more effectively than child sponsorship through Compassion. Your child sponsorship helps by providing the child with:

  • healthy food and clean water as needed
  • education and life-skills training
  • health care, medicine and immunizations
  • the opportunity to learn about Jesus and experience God’s love firsthand
  • A relationship with you, the sponsor, that can be nurtured through letter-writing and prayers.

When you help children in this way, they will always feel special because you cared enough to give.

At a cost of only $38 a month, it is surprisingly affordable to help children. Even better, you can live out your Christian faith by sponsoring a child right now.

The child sponsorship process is simple and easy. Some say it is an opportunity to be a missionary without leaving home. Remember, you’re literally changing a child’s life today — and possibly for eternity. Please click on a photo now to help children who desperately need your support.
