Imagine a world where you risk serious disease simply by taking a drink of water; where basic education is beyond your grasp; where ongoing conflict and disaster threaten your life regularly; and where you face the possibility of death before your reach your fifth birthday. This is the reality faced by millions of children living in extreme poverty the world over.
With your help we can transform the lives of these precious children. Compassion, in partnership with local churches, offers a proven approach to releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Through your support, children can eat nutritious meals, receive the education they desperately need, know they are loved and protected, and grow into the healthy, thriving individuals that God intends them to be.
With more than 2 million sponsored children worldwide, Compassion has a proven record of successfully meeting the critical needs of children living in extreme poverty. Compassion offers programs to children in greatest need, all through the local church. With your help, we can launch a new child development center (CDC) in Colab-og, Northern Samar, Philippines, to reach more children and help them overcome poverty.
