What our Sponsors are Saying:

Leona in Hawaii

Yes, I would recommend Compassion to a friend.

NOTHING BUT JOY! My husband and I have been filled with nothing but joy and great blessings from the moment we sponsored our first child, KAHINDA, from Tanzania. My darling son has grown so quickly and I have been blessed to watch him grow in his love for Jesus Christ. Today we sponsor four children from many parts of the world. We have received so much more than we have given. I love reading their letters and I love the feeling of sharing what God has given me with these beautiful innocent children.

I Love Sponsoring Through Compassion! I have been a sponsor for 3 years to a little girl from El Salvador, and I absolutely love it! It is so much fun to get her letters and updates in the mail. I also love how Compassion is so rooted in Christianity and how they are financially accountable as well. The only thing I would say is to make sure you actually can afford to sponsor a child and won't have to cut off your sponsorship after you've started it. One thing I would like to see would be more updates about the children.

Trustworthy. Items sent arrive to child! Though it's great to exchange letters and send pictures of our family, we wanted to send some tangible items, that we thought he & his family might like. My coworker has business in Indonesia & delivered a backpack full (items we purchased here) to the Compassion office closest to our child. It was exciting to get pictures of our kid and his family, wearing or holding the items we sent! In future I will send money, but it was great to know Compassion's integrity to get ALL items to him in his country.

Amazing Organisation I love the work that Compassion does. I have three sponsor children around the world, and they send me great updates and photos. I love seeing how the churches change the children's lives by not only equipping them with nourishment but also encouraging their Christian faith. If I've ever had any questions, Compassion's partner organization have been great to deal with. Would recommend it to anyone, such a blessing!

I HAVE AN INTERNAL JOY.... I was listening to my favorite Christian Radio station (Star 99.1) and they were having a telethon of sorts to get children sponsored. I was compelled to call in and sponsor a child. 2 weeks later, I received my packet with a picture of the prettiest little girl from Tanzania name Anna. My heart has been full ever since and I recently chose to sponsor a 2nd child also from Tanzania. This is the BEST THING I've done in a very long time. Thank you Compassion International!

Worth it! The children and their families are 100% worth your time, money and prayers! It may not feel like you are connecting with the children right away, but give it time. I just want to assure you that every single letter you send impacts them in a big way. I also want to say that every single penny you send is being used where Compassion says it's being used. I have had the opportunity to visit 3 of my sponsored children multiple times and each time I go I see spiritual, mental and physical changes.

I am very satisfied I have been sponsoring children through compassion for many years. They have always been a good choice of charity and they are working diligently to get better all the time.

Hildenborough I sponsor a little girl named Namthip, in Thailand. Her first photo showed a quite solemn little girl who perhaps did not understand what was going on. Getting to know her, exchanging letters, receiving her drawings and sending photos, has been such a wonderful, special experience. Her smiley happy face this year shows her confidence has really grown and I'm so glad I took that step to sponsor. All children are a gift from God and deserve to know His love. You can help make this happen!

Fullfillment I love Gloria so much, she writes to me sometimes and I her. I wish I could give more to her and meet her for the first time. I love that the church does so much for her and her family. Please God, keep watching out for her.

So Rewarding One of the most rewarding blessings ever. To receive letters, to write letters, to know that I am able to do Gods work. Matthew 9:37 "Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.' " “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” Mark 9:37. If I could help them all I would. Praise God for He gives me to give them.

This is for Wendy Hernandez Leon I sponsored Wendy Hernandez Leon back in 2011 or 12 for a couple of years and was sad to lose the letters from her when the sponsorship stopped. I wanted to resume it later but she had already been picked up by another sponsor. Well done Compassion. Thank you Jesus, God, and Holy Spirit you will find satisfaction in sponsoring your child. The kingdom of heaven is made up of these. Apostle Will

My Compassion Sponsorship I have been sponsoring since 21014 ,starting with one child in India (whom I had to stop sponsoring when Compasion got kicked out of India) sadly and added one at a time until I got up to 5 (with a little help from one of my sisters). There are two frorm Peru, two from Ethiopia, and one from the Philippines. It's been very rewarding and also a bit of a struggle to make sure the money is in the bank for the withdrawal every month but I never had to stop sponsoring. It really has been a joy.

I applaude Compassion!! I have sponsored a little girl from Indonesia for a little over a year. I enjoy getting her updates and also enjoy writing her letters. I am thinking of sponsoring another child and would like to thank Compassion for giving me this opportunity.

Blessed By Sponsoring I've always put off sponsoring children due to financial issues. While at a Women of Joy conference I had the pleasure of speaking with the people from Compassion International. I looked at all of the children and felt a tug at my heart. I said to myself that I just didn't know if I could sponsor a child. Then, clear as day I heard the Lord tell me "I make all things possible". I chose a little girl to sponsor and then a few days later chose a little boy. So blessed!

Great opportunity to make a difference I starting sponsoring one child in 2014, and have since started sponsoring another. I find it has been a very positive experience. I love getting the letters from my sponsored children, and seeing their updated photos. Just to comment on some of the issues people have brought up, my children always acknowledge receiving extra gifts, and respond to the questions from my letters. Overall, it's a great opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child.

Helping these kids is my happiness It's such a great opportunity I am willing to sponsor more with the Grace of God . Vey happy that they are being filled with God's word by Compassion and also that they can have a good education

You should definitely sponsor a child I think that you should definitely sponsor a child because it is fun and it helps people who are in poverty. It's like meeting a new friend. I would sponsor 1,000 kids if I could. It is very important and fun to do. I love it and recommend it.

James 1:27 God used Compassion to change my view of giving upside down. I used to be cynical toward giving, but after seeing the change it's made in my sponsored child's life, and my own life, I am the biggest advocate for this. $38/month is a small sacrifice in order to give a child medical care, nutritious food, education, attention, and most importantly, the Gospel message. My wife and I sponsor multiple children and hope to add more. Thank you Compassion for the work you are doing.

Love this ministry Would definitely recommend this ministry to anybody! I have been sponsoring for a little over 3 years and in that time frame have never had any problems working with this ministry! They have always had a quick answer for any of the problems I needed answers for, and just speaking with them you can tell they absolutely love their job. I completely trust this ministry and commend them on the amazing job they are doing with these children across the globe!!

Very Good Overall. Compassion is a wonderful organization. The employees work very hard and the few I have spoken to were all very kind, helpful, and easy to communicate with. Writing to, and receiving letters from, my sponsor child has been relatively easy and straightforward . . . seeing as to the distance between us, and the language barriers / translation time. Compassion's site is also very easy to navigate.

LIBIN in Kerala,India

Such a great Blessing I have been sponsoring four little girls from September 2015 and i have loved it with my whole heart. I pray for them in my rosary. Their letters and photos make my heart melt. Jesus has told us to feed the poor and to store our treasures in Heaven and not on earth, and i don't think there is any better way of doing this than helping these beautiful angels. I can assure you that you will be truly blessed by this.

Loving It Me and and my family are proud sponsors of three children. I remember when I was nine years old my family gave up Netflix to sponsors a boy named Kemberly. I have never regretted it once. The only trouble we had was some problems with the letters coming through.

A Blessing from God Over the past 12 years, Compassion has blessed us not only in our sponsorships, but through volunteer opportunities and updates from our children's worlds. The letter-writing is the best part, and being able to have a personal relationship with your child. Our daughter in the Philippines is our longest sponsorship at 12 years, and it has been a joy from God to watch her grow and flourish in His grace. Compassion is our heart!
