Releasing Children from Poverty


Compassion is an evangelical Christian child development organisation that gives Christians the opportunity to make a difference by sponsoring children living in poverty. Compassion works through more than 6,200 evangelical churches in 26 developing countries in order to bring hope and a future to some of the world's most vulnerable children. At present, more than 1.5 million children are receiving the benefits of Compassion's programmes across the world.

Of the 2.2 billion children in our world today, nearly half live in desperate conditions. It is these children who hold the potential to break the cycle of deprivation for future generations. They are pastors, teachers, doctors, engineers and change-makers of tomorrow. Compassion believes that Christ calls us, as his Church, to reach out to those in need with his love.
