Compassion Alumni

Compassion’s mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus name. We are grateful that by God’s grace, there are thousands of adults all over the world whose lives have been changed by the loving care of leaders in their local church and by the encouragement and support of faithful sponsors.

The men and women here are professional adults who were once involved in Compassion’s program. They share inspiring and challenging stories of hope, resilience, and God’s provision.
