Here is some more information for anyone who is interested.


Compassion partners with more than 8,000 Church in 25 countries to deliver their Child Development programme to more than 2 million infants, children and youths, around the world.

Children, familes and entire communites are being empowered to overcome poverty and thrive both now and in the future.

By sponsering a child through Compassion, you are giving them life-changing support including food, education and health checks.Working together alongside a local church, to bring hope and lasting change to a child living in poverty.

Thank you.
