Compassion’s Health Interventions provide children with quality medical care including life-saving surgery, cancer treatment and more.
Donations enable us to provide proactive and reactive care to some of the world’s most vulnerable children. Our Health Interventions empower our church partners to run life-saving malnutrition, HIV and malaria awareness programmes to stop children getting sick in the first place.
“I want to become a medical doctor when I grow up,” says eight-year-old Lavy from Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Lavy was inspired when he received a free vaccination from Dr. William, a visitor to his local Compassion project.
The vaccination programme, run by Compassion, protects children against Hepatitis B. This chronic viral disease causes long-term liver damage and continues to cost the lives of thousands of children in Burkina Faso every year. But it is preventable.
Lavy is from a family of four brothers, making the usual cost of vaccinations and blood screening tests too high. Despite Lavy’s mother, Agnes, earning a living from her sewing business and his father working part-time jobs, the family is struggling to recover from the recent economy. Agnes is thankful for the support she’s received from the local church.
“I am a proud mother today because the twins received their vaccine at the project to be safe from hepatitis B that costs the lives of many children. The support of the project is amazing, and I am more than thankful for all the support.” says Agnes.
Compassion has been a trusted charity since 1952. Over the last five years, donations to our Health Interventions have enabled us to distribute 20,483 mosquito nets and much more. All our Health Interventions are run in partnership with our church partners who know the needs of their communities inside out and are there to provide long-term support.
My children will no longer suffer from malaria. They will be healthier, meaning they will no longer miss classes, improving their school performances. It will create less expenses related to medical treatments.
