Meal for a Family

Food on the table to fight child hunger

Johaner dreams of being a professional soccer player. It is a dream any nine-year-old should be able to have. However, Johaner’s dream is hindered by chronic hunger that risks stunting his growth and development.

“Sometimes when I can’t go to school because there is no food, I get worried about not passing the school year,” Johaner says. Johaner and his siblings don’t attend school when they don’t have food, unable to learn with growling stomachs.

Food prices in Colombia increased by approximately 25 per cent in the last year, with families living in poverty being hit hardest.

When you give the gift of a Meal for a Family, you put food on the table for kids like Johaner. It’s more than just food in bellies—it’s a foundation for healthy growth and development, good education and a child’s ability to dream.

It’s giving nourishment, opportunity, and hope.

“One of my goals as a content creator is to use the platform God has given to me to be a blessing to others and to further His work around the world.

Newborn Care Package

Support for a newborn’s critical first days of life

Jeni knows all too well the devastating impact of not having the support and resources needed for a newborn. She had a baby that passed away at just four days old.

In 2020, 2.4 million children worldwide died in their first month of life. Infant mortality is highest for moms and babies living in poverty. “Low education and financial limitations limit access to health services,” says Indri, a Compassion staff member in Jeni’s community.

When Jeni became pregnant again, she joined Compassion’s Survival program. As part of the program, she gained access to healthcare, community, education, practical support and supplies for her baby.

“I received four pairs of new clothes for my newborn,” says Jeni. Other items provided include groceries, baby toiletries and detergent.

When you give the gift of a Newborn Care Package, you provide vital supplies for a newborn baby’s first weeks of life. A bright future starts at the beginning—the Survival program ensures babies get the best start possible.

It’s giving care, support and a healthy beginning.

"Being a new mom is hard. But being a new mom in the face of poverty is even harder. This year, we've chosen to partner with Compassion Canada to share about the Newborn Care Packages. For $10 we can help support new moms with essential items like diapers, blankets, soap and lotion. But more importantly, we can show that someone out there cares about them and that they're not alone.”

"There’s nothing quite as precious as those early days of motherhood. I remember it well! That’s why I’m excited to help raise money for Newborn Care Packages. All mothers should be able to cherish moments with their baby without lacking essential resources!"

“This year for Compassion Canada's Giving Tuesday campaign, I will be fundraising for Newborn Care Packages. This is something my children will be able to help fundraise with me, and what a beautiful way to show them how we are to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We want to help new caregivers in poverty get the essential supplies for newborn babies so they can, from the beginning, experience a loved and healthy life.”
