Eleven-year-old Thidarat from Thailand is afraid of two things: Snakes—not surprising, given that she lives near the homeland of the Burmese python—and war.

The child development centre: a safe haven in the midst of adversity

When children arrive at the Peruvian Evangelical Church in Carabayllo, Peru, they are welcomed by the smell of freshly-baked bread and pastries.

Equipping the Church, at home and around the world

When I tell people that Compassion serves almost 2 million children living in extreme poverty around the world, those who are well-travelled sometimes respond, “I travel to other countries all the time.
