Compassion aims to reach as many families as possible. Typically, only one child from a family will attend a project. The parents will choose which child is registered. However, if the family has great needs up to three children could be enrolled. The benefits of the program reach the whole family through interaction with staff, health screening, nutritional advice and supplies, parenting workshops and other church activities. Sponsored children often share what they learn at the Compassion project with siblings and many lead their entire families to Christ. As well as supporting your sponsored child and their family through prayer, as a sponsor you are able to send financial gifts to your sponsored child’s family.

How is my sponsorship donation used?

March 19, 2013 10:49 am

At Compassion Canada, a minimum of 80 percent of funds raised are used for ministry activities, including all field level expenses, which directly benefit your sponsored child. Less than 20 percent is used for fundraising initiatives and administration in Canada. Compassion assisted children and their families receive no cash. Benefits are always in the form of goods and services, carefully designed, delivered and purchased according to the children’s individual needs. Click here to view our latest financial statement.
