Compassion sponsors help release children from all forms of poverty — even those not visible on the surface.
One reason sponsorship through Compassion is so effective is that it meets children’s spiritual needs in addition to their physical, emotional and cognitive needs. Partnering with sponsors in this important, soul-level work are staff members like Andre, a center facilitator for Compassion Indonesia. Hear Andre share how sponsorship helps kids spiritually — and why that’s key to ending poverty.
Spiritual poverty isn’t as easy to identify as, say, hunger — but the need to address it is very real and essential in Compassion’s program. Caring staff members and volunteers at churches around the world sacrifice time and energy every day to show children just how much God loves them. Partnering with churches in this important work are sponsors like you, who send crucial support and encouragement through letters and gifts. By ministering to each child as a whole being made in the image of God, sponsorship helps give them the hope that is absolutely necessary to break the generational cycle of poverty.
