The Compassion difference .. showing every child that they matter, linking them with one sponsor whose support gives them hope and a future.

Compassion is a leading Christian children’s charity. At their heart is a relentless
passion to act on compassion and empower every child left vulnerable by
poverty. Their approach to fighting poverty is highly focused and personal. Since
1952, they’ve been giving children the opportunity to escape the suffering and
fear poverty brings through their one-to-one child sponsorship model.
Believing every child matters and deserves to be safe, fed, educated and empowered.

As a church we support a young lady called Arelis from Guatemala. She is age 14. Sponsorship involves making a regular contribution to her project which provides education and practical support. Additionally at Christmas and on her birthday, money is sent to be used for her. While at the project, Arelis writes to us and replies are sent. She updates us on the things she is doing and on her plans. Compassion provide beautiful electronic templates and cards to support communication.
