Growing Hope in
Pirasanth and his family in northern Sri Lanka faced an economic crisis and rising inflation that meant fewer job opportunities for his father and less income for their family. Living in the jungle, the family did not have a home that was safe for the children to play in. But thanks to your support, Compassion’s expansion has provided Pirasanth with a safe place to play — at the local Compassion center.
Compassion has been growing in Sri Lanka for the last four years. We opened 30 new centers in partnership with local churches in northern Sri Lanka, and we’ve registered over 7,085 precious children — Pirasanth being one of them! Pirasanth now has a table and chair where he can study his lessons and play. And he enjoys new clothes and shoes, all of which weren’t possible without you!
One of the most important gifts you have given this community is the knowledge that Compassion’s support is long term, creating a sense of safety and security. You’re helping thousands of families break the cycle of poverty. There are thousands more children like Pirasanth who are impacted by your donation, who are seeing new futures full of possibilities.
