How will your money help?
Through your monthly donation, the child you’ve chosen to sponsor is enrolled at a Compassion centre at a local church in their neighbourhood. Here, they receive holistic care, including formal and non-formal educational opportunities, health care, hygiene training, supplementary food, personal attention, guidance and love, as well as the opportunity to hear about and experience the love of Jesus from caring local church staff and volunteers.
Where does the money go?
Your donation helps children and families escape poverty for good through life-changing interventions. Your contribution will be delivered through local churches around the world by staff members in the field who know the immediate needs of children, families and communities.
