Who We Are
In response to The Great Commission, Compassion is an international Christian child development ministry, committed to child advocacy and working in partnership with local churches around the world to foster the spiritual, economic, social, physical and emotional development of children living in extreme poverty in over 26 developing countries. Compassion’s ministry to children is distinctly Christian. Our child development programs are unique in that they are: Christ-centred, child-focused and church-based.
What We Do
Compassion’s holistic child development programs minister to the spiritual, economic, social, physical and emotional needs of children throughout all stages of development; from the womb to university. Programs operate exclusively through local churches in developing countries. more
