How Can We Respond Together?
Compassion's church partners currently offer specialized programming at 1,800 Compassion Survival Centers to target early childhood survival for 27,000 mothers and their babies. In this Compassion Survival Program, trained specialists support mothers and babies, providing birthing assistance, essential nutrition and supplies, childcare training, personal discipleship and vocational training. Through it all, babies and mothers are loved and supported by other families and the local church.
