How do you tackle a problem like poverty?

In the face of poverty, you have a powerful story to tell.

As a Compassion sponsor, you’ve seen the impact we can have when we begin with a child, partnering with a local church and empowering them with practical provision and the life-changing message of the Gospel.

This May, we’re inviting you to tell this sponsorship story as part of Compassion Sunday. Take five minutes to share with your church, friends or family. Join the incredible movement of sponsors and volunteers advocating for children. It’s a simple but profound way to make even more of a difference tackling global poverty.
