Over nearly 70 years of ministry, Compassion knows that responding to poverty goes beyond simply giving people things because things won’t change communities – people will. Real and lasting change happens through holistic child development. Through the gifts of Compassion partners, children are empowered to become the givers and leaders who transform their world.

“Here at EmmBaby, we love babies, and we know what they need! While providing high-quality goods to parents and their little ones, we would love to help those in need, who fall below the poverty line, both moms and young children. We chose to partner with Compassion as we know that they are doing great work supporting many who have physical needs, as well as sharing food for the soul and spirit. We are very grateful for the blessings God has blessed us with and we are happy to share with others. It is a pleasure to see what Jesus is doing in the hearts and lives of people.”
Marina Piznyur, EmmBaby, Newmarket ON
“We love the work that Compassion Canada does to support children living in poverty and how they are striving to meet real needs with real solutions. Our company is proud to be a partner and support ongoing initiatives to help bring lasting change.”

“As a business owner I want to know that I am creating an impact in my staff, community, and leaving a legacy that my kids can be proud of. Sponsoring children through compassion “ticked all the boxes”. Our staff are engaged and are taking ownership of developing relationships with their kids, we chose to have all of our sponsor kids from the same region so our staff or my family can visit all of the kids and see the impact our investment has made. When considering the costs of the sponsorship program relative to the operating costs of the business, I wish I would have done this sooner.”
Clarke Rieck, Lyndon Fish Hatcheries, New Dundee ON
