Charity For Highly Vulnerable Children - Compassion International

Compassion's child development program allows you to rescue children living in poverty. Through Compassion's Highly Vulnerable Children fund you have the opportunity to donate to children in even more vulnerable situations.

When you donate to children through this fund, you literally rescue children from the most vulnerable of circumstances. Together with the local church, we identify children in highly vulnerable situations and provide them with specialized care based on their individual needs. These children need you! When you donate to children through the Highly Vulnerable Children fund, your generous donation will provide benefits like:

  • foster care,
  • trauma counseling,
  • shelter renovations
  • and even legal assistance.

Your donation will rescue children in poverty from some of the most life-threatening circumstances. Once vulnerable children are identified, we evaluate their physical and mental health, nutrition and other criteria to determine what needs to address to most strategically rescue children. When you give to this fund, you donate to children based on whatever their specific needs are, giving them things like:

  • nutritional assistance,
  • shelter renovations,
  • clothing or counseling for traumatized children.

Your decision to donate to children through the Highly Vulnerable Children fund will not just rescue children and meet a short-term need, but will change a life forever.

Helping Children Where The Need is Greatest

For the world's most vulnerable children, life is not an opportunity to learn or grow, dream or play. It is a struggle for survival and safety. This fund offers a lifeline to children facing almost unimaginable hardship. Your generous donation to this initiative will enable churches around the world to partner with Compassion to reach out into their communities and provide life-saving intervention to children who truly need it the most. Please help now. A child in danger is waiting for you.

How Compassion Helps Children in Need

Compassion works with its local church partners to identify children in high-risk circumstances. We evaluate factors that include the child's physical and mental health, nutrition and more. Interventions offered through this program include:

In addition to foster care and nutritional support, we offer counseling to encourage adolescents to stop risky behavior like sexual activity, alcohol use, smoking and truancy.

Everyday, 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.
