Millions of lives around the world have been changed as, together, we release children from poverty in Jesus' name.

Compassion supporters sponsor children for many different reasons. Some do so because they have been blessed and they want to give back. Others see a need and feel compelled to meet it. Many feel called by God to fulfill His command "to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:8 ,NIV).
