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 Group Trips will be cancelled up until May 15th. 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 with Compassion. 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 trips 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.

What is an Exposure Trip?

You’ve seen the pictures. You’ve written the letters. But now, you’re ready for something more.

Compassion Exposure Trips allow you to step into an intercultural experience alongside a group of other travellers. You will explore the home country of the child you sponsor—learning from people in their community and experiencing the local food, games, language and more. You will also have the opportunity to meet the child you sponsor face-to-face and deliver that next letter in person!

Please be sure to visit this pageto learn what makes Compassion Exposure trips unique and for more information about what you will experience on your trip. Not interested in attending a planned trip? You can meet your child on a Custom Visit!
