What our volunteers say

More than 2000 people volunteer with Compassion to bring hope to children in extreme need. Once you choose to volunteer, you too can join those who are using their skills to make difference.

I’ve had some of the most fun times volunteering with Compassion and met some of the most amazing people. It’s blessing to me and children in poverty.

From my first day I’ve felt so welcomed by each and every member of the Compassion team. Knowing that everything we do as office volunteers is releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name is humbling and inspiring.

One of my volunteering highlights was when I shared a [child’s] profile … the timing was just perfect and I know that child’s life will be changed. This work is life-changing and it’s so exciting to be part of it.
