What’s the difference between Compassion’s Christmas Appeal and Food Crisis 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.
