Highly Vulnerable Children (HVC)

How We Get Involved

Compassion depends on a network of local church partners to identify, intervene, protect and support children living in highly vulnerable circumstances. Please donate today to help children in poverty who need our protection most.

“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19

Pray for God’s hand of protection over children who are in vulnerable situations. Pray that trusted adults in their lives would advocate for them, intervene where necessary and bring them to a place of safety. We want each child to experience the hope and healing of Jesus.

Ti Mirak carrying a jug on her headEVERYDAY, WE HELP CHILDREN LIKE TI MIRAK

At seven years old, Ti Mirak was kidnapped as she walked home from the market place. For two months, she was beaten and nearly starved.

Ti Mirak’s mother turned to a local Compassion Center for help.

“The police don’t often help the poor when things like this happen,” explains the Compassion Center pastor. “Several children in our town have gone missing, and have never been found.” Donations to the Highly Vulnerable Children fund allowed Compassion to take legal action and find Ti Mirak.

But Compassion’s impact doesn’t stop there. Ti Mirak has been able to see a Christian psychologist for at least a year. Because of your donations, this beautiful girl is not only alive – but will attend school as she recovers.

Ti Mirak's name and identity have been changed to protect her privacy.
