Making A Difference... One Child At a Time

In the time it takes you to read this paragraph, it is likely that at least one child will become an orphan because of HIV/AIDS and another two or three may die of hunger or because of a preventable or curable disease. The problem is huge. The numbers are overwhelming. But please join me in reducing those numbers, one child at a time. Sponsor a child today with Compassion International.

Sponsoring children in need is breaking the cycle of poverty
Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.

Today, Compassion helps more than 950,000 children in 24 countries.
