How does Survival work?

Every day, thousands of innocent babies around the world are born into highly vulnerable circumstances that put their very survival at risk.

The mission of Compassion’s Survival initiatives is to give these precious children a healthy start in life and to show both mothers and their babies that they are personally known, loved and protected. But we can’t do it alone.

With your help, we can give mothers living in poverty the tools they need to change the story for their children— today, and for generations to come.
