What our Sponsors are Saying:

Poor Communication My mom and I sponsored a boy in El Salvador. He was just so adorable, and I was so excited to be sponsoring him. Recently, I was on the Compassion website, and noticed that it said your child should write you twice a year, at least. So I emailed them, to check why our sponsored child hadn't written us (it had been a year). Apparently, the mail kept getting sent back, I assume because they forgot to put an apartment number. We stopped sponsoring him in February, and had no clue until August.

Sponsor I am a sponsor to four beautiful kids. Three little girls and one little boy. I have a girl in Honduras, a girl in Dominican Republic, a girl in Haiti and my little boy is in Africa. I have been trying to sponsor for so many years and once I found out about corresponding, God opened a door for me to be a sponsor. I am so blessed to have the kids I do. To know there are kids who look foreword to the letters I send. Means the world to me :)

Sponsoring was a dream come true As a child, I always saw the ads on TV to sponsor a child and I wanted to, so much. Now that I am able to sponsor a young woman in Kenya and be a correspondence sponsor to a young man in Indonesia, my life has been so enriched by these wonderful people. These two are such blessings to me. I recommend Compassion without reservation. The money goes where they say it will and does what they say it does. A wonderful organization. God bless them!

Truly a blessing!!! We currently sponsor three children in Bolivia, and we have been blessed to meet them in person through mission trips with our church. We continue to be amazed and thankful for the great work that Compassion does. It is a truly beautiful ministry of support and development, and its positive influence multiplies throughout the communities where children are sponsored. We have seen many people come to Christ through Compassion. We are happy & humbled to be a part of it!

Wonderful Organization!! Compassion is a great organization and delivers on everything they say! It is a very eye - opening and gratifying experience to sponsor a child and get to know their personality! I have recommended Compassion to my family and friends.

Such a blessing Six years ago my church had Compassion Sunday, I so badly wanted to sponsor but knew I didn't have the funds to commit. Two years later things changed and when I saw Angelly, from Colombia, God just spoke to my heart that she was the one. That was 4 years ago and she is doing amazingly well. I love corresponding with her, she's so sweet. A month ago I sponsored 2 more, Cristi from DR and Cristel from Bolivia. I'm so happy to have my 3 girls. I pray I can make a huge difference in their lives

It feels great to know that you can help people who need help the most. one day my dad had called me and he was listining to Bob Dutko ( a great christian radio host ) and i had told him that i wanted to sponser a kid somehow and he told me two names to pick from. I picked Alinda i even called in bob dutkos show and thanked him for introducing me to compassion. now i have plenty of kids that i have sponsered. I just wish i was rich so i could sponser them all.

New Sponser I got my sponsorship packets in the mail today. I just started sponsoring two girls, one in Bolivia and one in the Philippines. I can't wait to get to know more about them and I sincerely hope I can visit them both someday!I only discovered it about 10 days ago, but I am already obsessed with Compassion International. I can't stay away from the waiting children's page and so far have come back to check it daily. I'm so happy every time I see a face move to the "recently sponsored".

My First "Daughter" MIRACLES do happen. I looked and found my first "daughter". At the time I found her picture, I knew I had to have a way to sponsor her but did not have the money to do so. I closed the page with tears in my eyes as I could not tell her YES. I told the Lord "I would if I had the money." The next day I received a check in the mail for $38.60 from a company that I had been having a problem with. I went to the bank deposited the money. I now will be able to sponsor her.

Helping Children In Need We have been sponsoring a child from the Philippines who recently graduated. We watched our sponsored boy grow into a young man of Christ. We wrote to Jims regularly and me and my wife recently decided to sponsor two more children a boy and a girl.

A great decision This is my first year of sponsoring a child on my own. I wanted to do something while in college to help someone else. I went to a concert where they had children needing a sponsor and this little girls adorable face was the packet that I kept coming back too. I knew then she was the one I was to sponser.

Changing our Lives too! We are in our second year of sponsoring children through Compassion. We have each of our children writing and praying for a child and it has been life-changing for them. They are making a friend, growing in their love of missions, and learning about other cultures. It has been fun to hear them refer to their sponsored children as if they were a friend living across town but also to show genuine concern for their well-being and compassion for their situations. So thankful for Compassion!

Be the feet and hands of Christ I believe Compassion helps us truly be the feet and hands of Christ. I never thought I would love someone so much that I've never met. We sponsor a child in Thailand named Ruangrit. He literally feels like a member of our family. We will have sponsored him for three years in August. I pray that the Lord continues to bless Ruangrit and use us to do his work. I am quitting smoking so I may sponsor a little girl that has the same name as me. May God help me quit so I may use the money for her. Amen

What a Joy! I currently sponsor 4 Compassion children. I have seen 3 more grow up into responsible adults. What a joy it has been to be a part of this great organization! I have traveled with Compassion to Kenya and to Haiti to see firsthand what Compassion does. Children's lives are changed by yours and my sponsorship.

Blessings I am currently sponsoring 3 children financially and correspondence sponsor for two other children. Being able to sponsor and have a relationship with these children has been such a blessing. It humbles me and my family to be able to share our lives with these families. It is amazing to get the letters these little ones send and to know your words, and the small amount of money we send is actually making a difference. $38.00 a month is such a small amount! Sponsor a child! Sponsor two!

Win-win for me and my sponsored children Since becoming a sponsor, I have visited most of my sponsored children and I can truly say that my sponsorship helps in every way. I had doubts at the beginning when I started sponsoring but I can see how my sponsorship develops my children spiritually, morally and physically. I am a Child Advocate and I would recommend CI to anyone.

Life Changing Recently I went on a Compassion Trip with my local Church. The Church I attend partnered with a Church in Bolivia. Going I really had no idea what to expect. All of the Compassion Staff made it a trip I will treasure forever. I was able to meet our child and form a bond with not only him but his entire family. Lots of tears were shed when leaving. During this trip we were able to sponsor a second child. I have nothing but respect for the Compassion Organization. This trip was life changing.

We love what Compassion Stands For We have been sponsoring two children for over a year in memory of our son who passed away unexpectedly. It has been a honor to see two shy children blossom and open up to us and share their hopes and dreams over this last year. Our 12 year old daughter has also recently signed up to sponsor a little girl. I am so proud of her decision to work for the monthly payment and help those less fortunate. We love that this organization is Christ centered and that we can freely share the Gospel with them.

great experience I have really enjoyed sponsoring the kids I have, and I have enjoyed sending and receiving letters. The only issue I have is I wish the compassion's website was setup so the child and I could send messages to each other through the website. The reason I say this I should have received 9 letters from my sponsored children, but nobody knows were they are.

Inspiring & Christ-Centered Mission I have only been sponsoring through Compassion for less than a year and already I talk to as many people as I can about getting involved with this company. I am definitely assured that God is working through this company. It seems like almost every time I'm having a bad day or I just need an energy boost, God works it out that I receive a letter from one of my beloved sponsor kids right on that day that boosts my spirits right up! I encourage everyone to get involved with this company!

Blessed to partner with Compassion! This year marks 10 years of my wife and I partnering with Compassion. Taking the step to sponsor a child has completely changed our lives! God is doing great things through this amazing organization. When we decided to sponsor a child, our thoughts were for the life we would help change in the name of Jesus. Never did we consider the change that would occur in our own lives through loving in His little ones. I am here to testify that we will be Compassion sponsors until the Lord calls us home!

One of the best decisions I've made! I've been a sponsor for 6 years. My 1st child is a boy in India. It's been a joy to receive his letters, drawing, photos, and to watch him grow into a young man. He graduated high school and is attending a vocational school to learn a trade. I'm so proud of him! I got to meet him and visit his school and home several years ago. What I saw vastly exceeded my expectations, and cemented my belief that this program transforms children's lives. I started my 2nd sponsorship this year!
