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.
How does Compassion help moms and babies survive? Critical care: Your support helps secure access to pre- and postnatal care, skilled birth attendants and medical intervention when necessary. Home-based care: Mothers are visited in their homes monthly by a Survival specialist, who offers education in prenatal care and early child-rearing as well as one-on-one biblical mentoring. Group-based learning: At these church-based activities, moms learn skills to earn an income and gain vital knowledge including basic literacy, the importance of breastfeeding and how to prevent malnutrition and disease. These groups combat isolation through a supportive community of mothers who, together, learn about the God who loves them.
