Compassion International

Our family sponsors two children in Guatemala through Compassion International. Visit their website here to learn more about Compassion and what they do.  Check out my first post about Compassion here. Compassion encourages sponsors to write their kids regularly to grow a relationship with them, and help the kids to feel loved and supported.

See my posts about writing our kids here: in this post, and more about what you can send to sponsored kids in this one.

Here's some general info about Compassion International's Child Sponsorship Program. I love this program because I feel that compassion is very transparent, and communicates well and often with sponsors. They encourage every sponsor to visit their sponsored child if they'd like to and they organize regular sponsor trips to the countries in which they work. 

What Compassion International does (in their own words):

"In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and 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."

Monthly sponsorship of a child provides food, health and hygiene training, medical checkups, educational opportunities, and funding for programs at a local compassion center or church.
