World's Poorest Countries
Compassion International works with children living in several of the world's poorest countries, including Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Haiti, Rwanda, Togo, Tanzania and Uganda. These nations and others, including Sierra Leone, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Central African Republic, have some of the worst conditions and the hardest circumstances for poor kids to survive. For the poor children living in these nations life is not easy or comfortable.
Poor kids registered in our child development program live in high-risk circumstances. The thousands of local churches we partner with in low- and middle-income countries throughout the world help these highly vulnerable poor children by assisting with basic human needs for clothing, shelter, nutrition, water and sanitation. They address health care needs by providing medical visits, vaccinations, and critical care assistance, and they offer educational support to allow students to attend or stay in school.
In the world's poorest countries, opportunities to break the generational cycle of poverty are hard to come by. Your tax-deductible donation gives poor kids a chance and offers children hope, where before there was none.
