Highly Vulnerable Children

Help Children Vulnerable to Exploitation

Your donation helps to support and protect children vulnerable to abuse, exploitation, homelessness and trafficking.

Help us protect and rescue the most vulnerable.

“Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” — Psalm 82:4, NIV

As the hands and feet of Jesus, we’re called to be the rescue for those in need. Children living in poverty are at a high risk of kidnapping, trafficking and other critical situations. With your support, we can help children in immediate danger and protect them from future threats.

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.

Your support helps children like Jefferson and Addison.

Twin brothers Jefferson and Addison were abandoned by their mother when they were just a year old. After their grandmother, Rosita, graciously stepped in to care for them, they were evicted from their home.

The family moved to a remote village without running water or electricity. Living in a home made of plastic bags, cooking what little food they had was extremely dangerous. One flame could set the home ablaze and leave the family homeless.

After Rosita registered the boys at the local Compassion center, the center staff stepped into the dangerous situation, gifting the family with running water, electricity and other essentials. Now, the boys are safe from the possibility of a fire and have what they need to thrive.

“My boys are studying, we always have food, and I feel closer to God…I feel happy and thankful for everything they [the Compassion center staff] are doing for me.” — Rosita, Jefferson and Addison’s grandmother
