About Us

Releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name

It’s a mission that drives us because the need is desperate. Ten percent of the world lives on $1.90 a day or less. Our hearts break for the millions of children who suffer from lack of resources, but we rejoice because there is hope.

We at Compassion know that the transformative power of Christ’s love is not bound by nationality or economic status. Unified by this conviction, our increasingly erse staff uses our talents and experience to serve more than two million children in 25 countries. We’re excited for you to join our ministry!
