The "Where Most Needed" Fund in Action - CJ's Story

At only 8 years old, CJ was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. Earning around $10US dollars a day, CJ’s parents could not afford the open-heart surgery needed to save their daughter’s life.

Compassion staff at CJ’s child development center were able to secure funding for CJ’s heart surgery from the Where Most Needed fund. Compassion not only paid for the surgery – but also provided for the bus ride, hotel stay and food costs for CJ, CJ’s mom and our center staff member. Thanks to donations given to the Where Most Needed fund CJ received life-saving surgery.

Today, CJ is a healthy young woman with a strong heart. Your donation to the Where Most Needed fund will allow for miracles like this one to happen around the world!
