Sponsor a child

Releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name.


The Compassion difference

With Compassion, you make all the difference. By sponsoring a child, you give them the practical support they need to escape poverty. Through your letters and prayers, you can inspire your sponsored child to achieve their dreams and put their trust in God. 

What’s more, you’ll help to spread the love of Christ through their family and community.
