Stability Interventions

Compassion’s church partners know their communities inside out and are uniquely positioned to respond to disasters. Our Stability Interventions provide relief, supplies and shelter in the aftermath of a disaster. They also provide new homes and kitchens for families in poverty and resources for Compassion’s church partners to launch new projects in poverty-stricken areas. 

The reality...

  • The number of weather-related disasters to hit the world has increased five-fold over the past 50 years.
  • Every year natural disasters kill around 45,000 people and affect close to 200 million people worldwide
  • More than 1 billion people have been lifted out of extreme poverty since 1990. However, COVID-19 has halted progress 

With your help we can...

  • Provide families impacted by crises with emergency shelter, medical supplies, food and water.
  • Build housing for families battling extreme poverty and give children a secure, safe home.
  • Empower parents in poverty by giving them access to income generation training and microfinance programmes.

You can provide for families like Kimberly’s who’ve lost their homes

“When I was told that our home was completely destroyed and all our possessions were gone, my heart sank,” confessed 20-year-old Kimberly, after Typhoon Rai battered her island in the Philippines in December 2021. “I thought that was the end of the world. Then, everything that I learnt from church and our Compassion project came rushing back, and I thought to myself God would help us.”  

Kimberly’s faith was well-placed. Straight after the storm, Compassion and its church partners were able to distribute food, safe water, clothes, tarpaulins, building materials and portable water filters to thousands of families like Kimberly’s, whose homes had been damaged or destroyed.

The support doesn’t end there: Compassion continues to help in the reconstruction. Many families, like Kimberly’s, will rebuild their homes on higher ground, farther from the danger of the sea. 

Kimberly is grateful for God’s love and provision. She says, “I know for sure now that God has not left us and will never leave us. God has a plan and purpose for all of us. 

Powerful testimonials from families given stability

You don’t just need to take our word for it, these are just some of the families who’ve been given security thanks to the generosity of supporters like you. 

Right now, we thank the donors who provided for the house construction. The life of my daughter has changed completely. Before, she lived in only one room with us and now, as the intervention is complete, she has the opportunity to sleep in her own room.

Junia’s Father, Haiti 

I am overjoyed that I’ve been given the opportunity to try my hand at a variety of businesses.  

We gained insight and energy to work for the improvement of my family after receiving instruction on how to handle the business.

Tsehay, Ethiopia 

The Compassion programme surprised us with donations of food. In our community many of us as parents couldn’t believe the benefits of the programme, as no other institution had supported us as Compassion did.

Why choose Compassion when disaster strikes?

Compassion has been a trusted charity since 1952. Over the last five years, donations to our Stability Fund have enabled us to construct 22 new homes. All our Stability interventions are run in partnership with local churches who know the needs of their communities inside out and are there to provide long-term support.

We believe that the work of Compassion worldwide is Jesus’ love in action, and whilst he does not expect us to fix the whole world, he does expect us to do what we can. So, whilst we cannot fix the whole of Haiti’s problems, we are excited and blessed to be involved in helping build new homes for two families.
