Our hearts break for our global Compassion family who have suffered the pain and loss caused by COVID-19. The pandemic and economic shutdowns are predicted to push an additional 150 million people into extreme poverty by the end of 2021. The World Food Program warns that rising global hunger and food insecurity will lead to a devastating famine across developing countries. Please continue to pray for those who are deeply impacted by this pandemic. Our Compassion staff, volunteers and frontline church partners across the world are working diligently and creatively to serve vulnerable children and their families. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.

Below, you can find the most up-to-date reports from the countries where we work, and how new guidelines and events are affecting Compassion programming. Please continue to check back to this page for further updates.
