What is the extra $10 used for?

Last Updated: November 28, 2017 11:20 am

Sponsorship plus Urgent Needs provides funds for additional benefits for sponsored children, their families and communities that cannot be provided by child sponsorship funds alone. While sponsorship funds provide activities which directly benefit your sponsored child, the extra $10 from Sponsorship plus Urgent needs is used to fund initiatives and programs which sow further into the lives of Compassion assisted children, their families and communities.

As Compassion raises more funds for these activities, we will be able to assist more sponsored children with these additional benefits.

Some of these include:

Emergency medical care

HIV and AIDS Initiative – includes education on prevention as well as care

Education and training programs for parents of sponsored children

Partner church development – including church partner staff training.
