How to Save a Child

For children living in poverty, the world is not a kind, caring place. It's a place where they struggle to survive. Last year alone, roughly 15,000 children under age 5 died each day. It's an unacceptable number of largely preventable child deaths.

Given the level of poverty around the world—one in three children worldwide live in poverty—it’s easy to view the idea of saving children from a life of desperation as impossible. But the truth is that you can save a child today through our holistic child development program.

As part of our Child Sponsorship Program, we provide holistic care to fully address the needs of each registered child. We offer holistic care to help each child fully develop and become a responsible and fulfilled adult.

By holistic care we mean whole-life care. It's long-term, and it's comprehensive. It means we provide opportunities that encourage healthy spiritual, physical, social and economic development, including building self-esteem and self-respect.

Did you know that you can save children around the globe?

Did you know that you can save children around the globe? As an individual, that thought may seem overwhelming. You can save children throughout the world with just the click of your mouse when you sponsor a child today.

You can help save children by fulfilling some of their most basic needs. Your child sponsorship support provides relief from poverty while demonstrating the love of Jesus. Sponsoring a child means offering:

  • food and clean water
  • educational opportunities
  • medical care like immunizations, regular checkups and more

When you sponsor a child, you also assist with his or her spiritual development. Compassion offers your child the opportunity to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Experiencing Christ can save children and offer them the hope to persevere and even overcome their impoverished circumstances.

You’ll also be able to establish a relationship with your child through letters, photographs and prayers. And if you like, you can visit your child in his or her native country.

Releasing a child from poverty costs only $43 a month. For a little over a dollar a day, you are offering a child opportunity — opportunity to grow and thrive, opportunity to fulfill his or her God-given potential.

You can save children right now. Please take a moment, and donate to save a child today.
