Due to the current global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Compassion Canada has decided to cancel all international travel for the near future. This means that any Custom Visits will be cancelled up until August 30th. All other trips are currently on hold until further notice.

This restriction comes from an abundance of caution to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus within the Compassion community and to prevent unexpected travel complications for anyone travelling internationally. We do not want to risk spreading the virus to our beneficiaries, Frontline Church Partner staff or National Office staff.

We will be reevaluating upcoming visits on an ongoing basis. Please feel free to check back every two weeks for updates or contact the Field Experience team at 1-800-563-5437 ext. 608 or fieldexperience@compassion.ca.

Why a custom visit?

We call them Custom Visits because each one is unique. You can choose where you meet your Compassion child, who comes with you and when you travel. You can craft your own special experience, and we will work hard to help you make it the best it can be.
