Rumela sitting with her childEVERYDAY, WE HELP MOMS LIKE RUMELA

Rumela was five months pregnant when her husband abandoned her. With no money to pay for even her own food, she heavily considered giving her child away.

Then someone from her local church reached out and invited Rumela to be a part of Child Survival. Immediately she began receiving regular medical check-ups and nutritious meals. Four months later, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Gauri.

Since then, the local church has taught her skills that allow Rumela to earn an income so that she can meet her child’s basic needs. Because of Child Survival, Rumela is raising a healthy baby girl and believing in God for what’s next!

Compassion Survival for Babies

Compassion's Survival is a powerful way to help mothers and babies escape the cycle of poverty. Your support will help mothers to give their babies the best possible life, despite the difficulties of living in poverty. The odds are already stacked against babies born in poverty, and Survival offers an opportunity to change this reality. Your prayers and financial support are invaluable.

Compassion Survival works through the local church to help mothers learn to care for their babies. Mothers learn about breastfeeding and safe food preparation. They receive food supplements, vitamins and spiritual support. When their babies are ready to be born, a birth attendant and advocate is with them.

With Compassion, you can have confidence that the money you give to Survival will directly help mothers and their babies in desperate need. When you hear the stories of the way God is changing lives through this program, you can't help but get involved.
