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 1.2 million children in 26 countries.
Compassion International has four core programs including Child Survival, Child Sponsorship, Leadership Development and Complementary Interventions. In addition to sponsorship opportunities, Compassion reaches out to meet critical needs of children enrolled in its programs through Complementary Interventions. Some of these interventions include Disaster Relief, Highly Vulnerable Children, Water of Life, Medical Assistance, and Income Generation and Infrastructure Development.
You will be able to choose which program you’d like to support with your $75 registration fee.
