Health Interventions

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.

The reality...

  • Malaria takes the life of a child every minute of every day.
  • In 2019, an estimated 5.2 million children under 5 years old died from preventable and treatable causes
  • Between 2000 and 2020, the prevalence of stunted growth in children globally declined from 33.1% to 22%

With your help we can...

  • Provide children with long-lasting insecticide-treated nets to keep them safe from this deadly disease.
  • Give children life-saving vaccinations and medical treatment.
  • Protect the most vulnerable children by providing extra nutritional food support.

You can protect children like Lavy against Hepatitis B

“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.

These are just some of the testimonies from children who’ve been supported by Compassion’s Health Interventions.

I was sick before this and had limitations with physical activities… Now I can go to school, go to the centre and play with my friends.

Martonius, Indonesia

We used to think that malnutrition was for poor people. After this intervention we realise that you can be poor but have the knowledge and skills, so your children won’t suffer from malnutrition.

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.
