April is Volunteer Month. (Woohoo! Hooray! Toot toot!) Have we told you lately how much we love our volunteers? Without volunteers, Compassion simply wouldn’t be able to help nearly as many children living in poverty. Volunteers in our field countries give their time at Compassion centres at local churches to care for children. And volunteers in our funding countries—including Canada—give their time to pray and raise awareness and support for even more children living in poverty. Without you, churches in the developing world couldn’t reach nearly as far in loving those in the greatest need in their midst.
So to celebrate our volunteers this month, we wanted to hear from you! We asked some of our workers and volunteers around the world what they love about giving their time to help children in need.
