Compassion Summer Intern: Putting a Face of Poverty

Like many of our sponsors, Compassion Summer Intern Veronica Fetzer learned a powerful lesson about poverty through a relationship with a child named Dairyn whom she met on a trip to Guatemala.

Although Dairyn is not enrolled in Compassion's program, she has helped Veronica realize that our ministry's impact reaches beyond the walls of the child development centers:

•The local church is reaching out to the community.
•Dairyn has adults within the church to minister to her needs.
•Sponsors are praying for the needs of children who are not in our program as well as their own sponsored children.

Compassion Summer Intern: Personal Compassion

For university students, the opportunity to be a Compassion summer intern provides valuable experience in a variety of professional fields. But this internship experience also provides something much more personal.

For Compassion summer intern Alex Tunell, a trip to Guatemala brought the ministry home as he experienced firsthand what we do in communities. It was there that he sponsored and met Blanca Alina Hernandez Chinchilla.

It's For the Kids

As a parent, you find yourself doing things "for the kids" that you never would have dreamed about before they came along. Why?

It's because kids matter.

At Compassion, everything we do is for the kids. And we won't stop fighting for them until poverty is eradicated from our planet.

•Pray that they will use sports to grow physically and spiritually.
•Pray that the children of Brazil will be protected from trafficking.
•Pray that children will learn humility and good sportsmanship.

3. Create artwork together to send to your sponsored child.
4. Ask them to help you write your sponsored child.
5. Read the letters you receive from your sponsored child with them.
