Sponsor a child
in poverty

Poverty is a thief. It robs children of the right to grow up strong and healthy. It steals their time to play and denies them the chance to sit in a classroom and learn.

But you can change this. Sponsor a child with Compassion and bring them hope. Bring good news to a child who has been waiting many months for a sponsor.

The Compassion difference

Compassion UK is a Christian charity passionate about empowering all children to overcome the obstacles poverty puts in their way. Our approach to fighting poverty is highly focused and personal. It’s summed up in three simple words: Compassion for children. We show every child they matter, linking them with one sponsor whose support gives them a hope and a future.
