Help Guard the Health of 376 Children and Their Families
Compassion is committed to releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name. With just under 385 million children globally living in extreme poverty (less than $1.90 per day),1 the task is urgent and demands action. Compassion currently partners with like-minded frontline churches in 25 countries to try to improve the long-term outcomes for more than 2 million children. All children registered with Compassion benefit from being known, loved and protected. They receive Christ-centered guidance, health checks and supplemental nutrition, and they participate in academic lessons and recreational activities. Through a relationship with a local church and a caring sponsor, a child is able to discover his or her true value in God’s sight.
Sometimes, in order to provide children with the best opportunity to thrive, a center or group of centers will request funding for a special project — to build improved sanitation facilities or drill a well, to build and furnish classrooms, or to offer vocational training. These are just a few examples of the critical interventions that help ensure the health, safety and outlook for children registered with Compassion.
This is where you come in! A gift to construct much-needed new restroom facilities, hand-washing stations and a multi-purpose room, and to provide special training in healthy hygiene practices, will help reduce the effects of poverty at one of our centers in Brazil by decreasing sanitation-related illnesses and dental diseases. Thank you for prayerfully considering this proposal to make an incredible difference in the lives of 376 children.
