This Christmas season, our team at Compassion Canada wants to equip your church community to make a difference in the lives of children living in poverty through a five-week Gifts of Compassion journey. It takes less than five minutes each week to rally around this cause.

We all know the realities of global poverty. But this year, the COVID-19 crisis is pushing millions of children and families into even deeper need. That’s why we are inviting churches in Canada to help meet these needs through Gifts of Compassion.
