You can lead a camel to water. And that responsibility often falls to children like this boy in Ethiopia. 🐪 🐫

But a drought has made water and food harder to find. In this increased time of need, Compassion has intervened by distributing food to families that have kids in our program. No child should ever fear going hungry!!

Meet Tomasa: Once a drug dealer. Now a grandmother of three leading a life of service and love.

Her life was transformed. And it wouldn’t have been possible without support from this incredible church we partner with in the Philippines. ⛪️ 🇵🇭

What if a heart could be moved to heal a broken one? That’s the story of Fatao Kone, from Burkina Faso.

When Fatao’s parents were told their son would need heart surgery, they wept because they had no way to pay for it. But thankfully a neighbor told Fatao’s mother that his Compassion center could help. With no medical equipment in his area, the surgery had to take place abroad, but sponsors, donors and the church that we partner with in Burkina Faso came together to raise funds to make the procedure possible. The health specialist at his Compassion Center traveled 6,000 miles with little Fatao!

Fatao’s surgery was a success and now he has more time to play with his buddies — something he did not have the energy for when he was weak and sick. Never lose site of miracles. A heart can always be made full! 🇧🇫 💔 ➡️ ❤️

Today is World Day of Social Justice. It’s a day all about promoting development and human dignity for ALL people. And there is a woman in Uganda doing just that.

At age 12, Patience Namanya’s life looked hopeless. Tragedy was relentless in her home. She lost both of her parents from AIDS, leaving her to be raised by an abusive aunt in the slums of Kampala. She spent many days feeling alone and ashamed. But transformation is never out of reach. She was enrolled in a Compassion program where she was able to make education a priority. And she was connected with a sponsor that encouraged her through letters and loving words.

Nearly two decades later, Patience is an inspiration to all. Upon earning a bachelor’s degree in social work and administration, she began working to fight corruption. Her awareness of injustice has given her a purpose to make a better life for others in her country. And with courage, perseverance and strength, she has faced down some of the most powerful men in Uganda. This has led her to become a member of the Anti-Corruption National Strategic Planing team. Because Patience knows that any story has the power to change from hopeless to hopeful. 🇺🇬💪🏿

“Where poverty is hopeless, your words of hope and encouragement – your letters, notes and birthday cards – can give your child the self-confidence he or she needs to take on life’s difficulties.” – Jimmy Mellado, Compassion International President and CEO

When the child you sponsor receives a letter it doesn't only brighten their day. It brightens their entire life. Can you see it in the smiles of these boys from Ethiopia? 📝 🔆

It’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science! Today, we recognize all of the amazing women and girls making groundbreaking achievements in the world of science, like Rosa Cueto Vega from Peru.

This Fishing Engineer and Compassion alumna is reaching success thanks to her perseverance and resiliency through the hardest of times. Though her journey through poverty was filled with struggles, she is now thriving in her career and life. This is Rosa at the Fisheries School at Agraria University, where she earned her degree in 2011. Let her serve as an inspiration to all women and girls interested in entering science-related fields! 📚 ⚓️ 💭

Loved. Remembered. Encouraged. That’s how your letters make the child you sponsor feel.

Why do YOU write to the child you sponsor? 📝 💌
