Where Most Needed

They Need Your Help Now

Hunger, illness, and lack of shelter are the untold story for too many children. Your gift of compassion provides help for their urgent needs.

How We Use the “Where Most Needed” Fund

Your donations are reserved into a general fund that can be used to provide for a variety of essential needs faced by children in poverty.

Donations to Compassion's Where Most Needed fund provide not only essentials and life-saving care, but resources necessary to accomplish our mission – including personnel, materials, buildings, and equipment. Your tax-deductible donation is stewarded by Compassion to provide for children around the world in immediate need.

Your Gift Helps Change Lives

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” — Mark 10:14

Your gift provides for the basic needs of children, the opportunity to help release them from poverty, and to experience a relationship with Jesus.

Every day, children around the world are in urgent need of nutrition, health care, education, and the love of Jesus. Some needs are due to unforeseen events like natural disasters, while others are the result of being in a cycle of poverty.

Your gift is used based on a holistic approach to meet physical, social, economical, and spiritual needs. By partnering with local churches at the point of delivery, children are able to have these needs met while experiencing God’s healing power through the love of His people.

At only 8 years old, CJ was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. Earning around $10US dollars a day, CJ’s her 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 her 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 her 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!
