A life beyond the sugarcane fields

The sun burns the back of Eliseo’s neck as he raises his machete and swings. He tosses the severed sugarcane stalk onto a pile he’s already cut, wipes the sweat from his eyes and hacks another. He’s been at it for hours but can’t rest yet. He has a family to provide for and he […]

Saying no to child marriage

The thirteenth year of a girl’s life should be a time of dreams, hope and excitement. She’s somewhere between childhood and adulthood, learning to figure out life, engaging in friendships, working on her studies. It’s certainly not the time to get married. But for many girls in rural Bangladesh, this is exactly what happens. Parents […]

Toilet Talk

Let’s take a moment to talk about…toilets. Yes, potty talk is usually discouraged. But we’re going to break the rules for a moment because as awkward as it is to talk about them, toilets are important. In many communities where Compassion works, there aren’t many toilets.

Haiyan hit on November 8 and seven days after, the unofficial casualty count is feared to be more than 10,000 people. Arriving at an exact number is difficult due to power […]

A home destroyed and a little boy’s hope

There’s only one thing left untouched in Christian’s home: A single wooden beam stands with a nail in it. Christian’s school medals hang proudly from the nail, just as he left them. While his medals somehow defied Typhoon Haiyan’s rage on November 8th, the rest of this 9-year-old’s home was blown to pieces. His wooden […]

Do Gifts of Compassion work?

You all are so generous that last year Compassion Canada raised $1.1 million to respond to various needs around the world through Gifts of Compassion. That’s exciting stuff! But we don’t  just want to have good intentions. We want to make sure we’re doing things in the best way possible. That’s why our smarty-pants researchers just […]
