COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL

A MISSIONS GOAL

This is a Christian organization that aims at releasing children from Poverty
in Jesus’ Name

“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.”
Proverbs 19:17

THEIR MISSION

Is all about love. We love God, and we demonstrate our love and live out our faith by extending care to others.

We offer our programs to the poorest of the poor, to the children in greatest need, without ulterior motive. We devote ourselves to helping children of all faiths, cultures, backgrounds and race — without imposing any religious obligation or conversion requirement upon them.

We simply aspire to be like our Savior, Jesus Christ, in who we are and what we do.

THEIR HISTORY

One man’s act of compassion for South Korean war orphans has grown into a worldwide ministry releasing millions of children from poverty in Jesus’ nameRev. Everett Swanson holding an orphan child.

More than sixty years ago, a preacher from Chicago flew to South Korea to minister to American troops fighting in the Korean War. During his time in Seoul, the Rev. Everett Swanson grew increasingly troubled by the sight of hundreds of war orphans living on the streets, abandoned by society.

One morning he saw city workers scoop up what looked like piles of rags and toss them into the back of a truck. He walked up to the truck for a closer look — and was horrified to see that the “piles” were not rags, but the frozen bodies of orphans who had died overnight in the streets.

Swanson could not turn his back on these unwanted children and vowed to find a way to help them. He raised money to support a Korean orphanage and soon established a unique program that allowed an individual in the Western world to provide Bible-based education, food, clothing, shelter and medical care for a Korean orphan for a few dollars a month.

Embracing children in need remains at the heart of who we are and has been honed over six decades of ministry.

What i love so much about Compassion International is the idea of linking your birth mate to you. You can search for a child that shares the same birth day as yours and sponsor such out of poverty.

When you sponsor a child, you’ll be personally connected with a boy or girl who will know your name and treasure the thought that you care. Your support of $38 per month provides life-changing opportunities such as:

  • an opportunity to attend or stay in school
  • medical care, which often saves lives
  • nourishing food
  • mentoring and a safe environment through a local evangelical church
  • and most important, opportunities to hear the gospel.

Compassion child sponsorship works! Millions of children have “graduated” from our program and are now responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. Allow God to work through you in the life of a child in poverty.

Give a child hope for the future and for all eternity. Sponsor a child today!
