As you scroll through these pictures from around the world, don’t lose the fact that at one time, these two hands had never met.
We're no longer strangers when we hold hands. We're bonded together through the power of touch. Even if it's only for a moment.

As a Christian non-profit, transparency is very important to us. We crack open our financial books and let you see how your money is spent.
Compassion International's 2015 Annual Report reflects a year of growth as 1.7 million children in poverty were known, loved and protected.

"Cuentame acerca de tu padrino.…tell me about your sponsor," we asked them. Almost before we can get the question out of our mouths, the kids are out of their seats heading towards the safe-haven that protect the letters they get from you. #CompassionLetter
Some of them hide them in dressers or keep them organized in folders. Some display them proudly on their walls. But do your letters make a difference?

The tenderness and kindness of her grip could not contend with the grip of this world.

God saved me from this world and from myself through the grip of a child.

"..there are two sides to the story of sponsorship: the child and the sponsor. I was wrong. There are so many more sides to the story. Today, I heard the sides of his parents."

Ashley Campbell in Quito, Ecuador meeting the mother of Ismael whom her family sponsors. It was a day that two mothers from different cultures got to pray together for each others children.

Our plane arrived in the late hours of the night. On the way to the hotel I learned that we would be meeting our sponsored son Ismael and his family the next day. Originally, I thought we would be meeting his family later in the week, so the news caught me off guard. As I prepared for this trip,…

I just sponsored a little girl from Kenya through Compassion and their costumer service is great! It was so easy and all my questions were answered. It took less than 15 minutes from start to finish. Please consider sponsoring through Compassion International today!

I have supported a child in El Salvador for about 9 years now and have been very impressed by this organization. The letters and pictures of this child have come about 4 times a year. I send money for his birthday and receive a letter of what the local organization bought him which is usually clothes. I can assure others that this is a worthwhile ChristIan missional organization with high integrity. My only complaint is that I can't send more personal items to him and am limited to their regulations.

it seems like a great organization but I am suspicious of it. my mom has been donating for years and always writing letters. the letters don't add up ever and her questions never get answered. I wonder if there even is a girl sometimes.
Response from the owner - 7 months ago
Hi Blair. Sorry that your mom has been having some issues with her letters. We know that it can be really tough and even frustrating to pour into the life of a child without getting much back. Has your mom tried underlining or highlighting her questions? This helps our staff make sure that the child is able to answer them. Sometimes the timeline of the kids receiving and writing letters gets messed up, too. They might be writing a letter when yours is en route. All that to say, if her child continues to write the same things in the letters and does not answer her questions, please let us know by emailing socialmedia@compassion.com and we can work more closely with her sponsored child to help resolve this issue.
