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. 

SPONSOR A WAITING CHILD

Compassion child sponsorship works

Independent research shows that Compassion-sponsored children are more likely to be employed as adults, and leaders in their communities and churches. Sponsor a child today with one of the UK’s leading Christian charities. Be inspired by how child sponsorship changes lives:
