Medical Assistance - Compassion International

Children living in poverty are especially vulnerable to disease and sickness and your medical donation can make a big difference in their lives. When a child in poverty faces medical issues, he is even more vulnerable to the devastating effects of poverty, and your medical donation can literally save his life. Giving your medical donation through Compassion’s medical assistance fund will allow a child in poverty access to the best medical treatment available, regardless of cost.

When you give a medical donation through our program, your money will help provide for expensive but critical treatments such as surgery, vision and hearing issues, prosthetic limbs, wheelchairs, trauma counseling and special dental needs.

Compassion’s medical assistance fund is one of our Complementary Interventions and together with our holistic child development program, it allows children escape the crippling effects of poverty. Your medical donation will.

When you make a medical donation through our medical assistance fund, you can be assured that your money will directly help children who need it most – children living in poverty and facing medical issues. Give today and change a life forever.

Medical Assistance Donate to Provide Medical Care for Children

Help sick or hurting children get the care they need to heal, improve the quality of their lives, or even save their lives.

  • Life-saving surgeries such as transplants and trauma surgery
  • Casts to help heal broken bones
  • Wheelchairs and walking canes to assist with mobility
  • Treatments for children diagnosed with cancer
  • Counseling for children who’ve been injured in a traumatic accident
  • Eye surgeries – or even a pair of desperately needed eye glasses
  • Hearing tests and hearing aids
  • Special dental needs
  • Funeral expenses in the worst-case scenarios

Your donation will improve the quality of life for a child living in poverty. Provide toward their medical expenses today.

Everyday, We Help Children Like Steven

11-year-old Steven from Ecuador was brutally attacked by teenage boys near his home. He was captured, bound, covered in gasoline and set on fire. He ran to a nearby river and was able to put out the fire. But none of the hospitals in Ecuador were equipped to deal with the severity of his burns, which covered more than 65 percent of his body. Within days, Steven was brought to a hospital in the United States where a burn unit provided him with the care he needed.

Because of generous donors like you, over $500,000 was raised to help pay medical bills for him and other children facing difficult medical situations. It is estimated that he will need at least 7 years of care, including counseling and physical therapy.

Overall, he is doing so much better, and his family is praising God for his recovery! They have been so encouraged by the prayers and support they've received.
