GIVE A GIFT

Let Christmas begin with a child this year

As we look to show God's love this Christmas amidst the complex issues facing our world, it can seem like an impossible task. The joy and hope that comes from knowing the true meaning of Christmas may be far from people's minds.

But just as God's salvation plan for the world began with a child, you can start to make a difference this Christmas - one child at a time.

That's why we're asking you to join us as we partner with thousands of church partners around the world to share the love of Christ with children this Christmas.

Some will celebrate with a Christmas meal and gifts. Other church partners, in regions where the pandemic is still threatening lives and livelihoods, will personally deliver practical items - like food, shoes, or clothes - to children in their care and their families.

Come join us as we share the hope of Christmas around the world.

Send a Christmas greeting

So many children we serve treasure the kind words from their sponsors during this time. Your encouragement this Christmas will bring great joy to your sponsored child.

"This celebration has brought the children joy and hope."

- Guadalupe, mother, El Salvador


"It was beautiful because they presented the gospel. It's an opportunity for many children to hear about God because in some cases they don't have that opportunity at home. However insignificant these gifts seem for other people, they represent a lot to our children because we cannot give them to them."

- Eva, mother, El Salvador

"I think it is important for every child to have a nice meal at Christmas, one they can share with their family. It makes us feel special and cared for, knowing that people are thinking of us and want us to share this with them.”

"The COVID-19 pandemic is so hard on everyone, including my family. But the encouragement we got from the sponsor strengthened us. I was touched when I read the letter the sponsor sent for Christmas. The sponsor said he was praying for our family so that we could survive the pandemic.”

- Valentine, Shevas mother, Indonesia

Your Christmas questions answered

Some of the questions you may have about sending a greeting or giving to our Christmas Appeal.

At Compassion UK, we’re currently running two major appeals to serve children and young people around the world effectively.

Our Food Crisis Appeal is equipping our church partners to respond to the urgent hunger needs they’re reporting in their local communities. Thanks to generous donations from supporters, our church partners are giving emergency food packages to families vulnerable to food insecurity. What’s more, they are also providing long-term food security through the distribution of seeds, fertiliser, livestock, and training on building and maintaining home gardens and small-scale farms.

Our Christmas Appeal is focused on giving children and young people the opportunity to celebrate Christmas after a year of instability and challenges. Your donation will empower Compassion’s church partners to give every child a Christmas gift they really need such as clothing, shoes or food. What’s more, you’ll also give many children the opportunity to enjoy a Christmas party and meal where the hope of the gospel will be shared.

In countries where the global food crisis is causing a severe risk of malnutrition, our church partners will prioritise emergency food provision to children in their care and their families.

Our Frontline Church Partners will try to guide families on ways to spend gifts when they are disbursed as in cash, but the decision will be made by the child’s caregiver(s). We recognise that, in some cases, meeting a family’s critical needs will be the right choice in the best interests of the child. Caregivers are well placed to make this choice.

We completely understand that not everyone is able to give financially at this time. If you and your family are still suffering because of the cost of living crisis or COVID-19, please know that we are standing with you in love and prayer. Please get in touch if you’d like someone to pray with you, or if you’d like to discuss the options we have to support you during this time.
