Donate to Children in Need to Break the Cycle of Poverty

With your charitable donation, you can support children living in extreme poverty and truly save lives. Statistically, children living in poverty struggle with mental health and remain poor for the remainder of their lives. However, with just one donation, you can help break the cycle of poverty.

Looking to Donate to a Children’s Charity? Choose Compassion.

You can donate to children in need in a variety of ways. One way is to donate to children living in poverty through Compassion International. With your donation, we partner with local churches to deliver life essentials such as food and water, medical care and more to those who need them most.

Compassion offers a gift catalog you can view if you’d like to choose a specific cause. Another way you can donate to children is to sponsor a child. Through sponsorship, you give a monthly donation that goes directly toward your sponsored child’s education, nutritional needs and much more.

Plus, as a sponsor, you can deliver life-giving encouragement to a child living in poverty. For example, you’re able to write and send letters to your sponsored child, providing a tangible expression of love and hope.

Join Us to Release Children from Poverty in Jesus’ Name

As a Christ-centered, church-driven and child-focused organization, Compassion International goes beyond the traditional means of helping children in poverty. With the support of the local church, we work to meet all a child’s emotional, physical and spiritual needs.

We offer a true introduction to Jesus Christ, delivering hope to those living in hopeless situations. You can deliver hope, too. Join the movement and sponsor a child today!
