Who is Compassion UK?

Compassion - twitter card 2

Compassion is one of the world's leading child development and child advocacy organisations.

Our approach is a personal one. Working with the local church, we link a child living in poverty with a loving sponsor, like you. Each sponsor gives their child access to education, health checks and the care of a local church-based Compassion project. There's no quick fix to global poverty, but through our programmes, children's lives are being changed. We're impacting families, communities and whole nations.

Compassion works in partnership with local churches in 25 developing countries. Together, we provide resources, training and expertise to help the church give the children in their community the opportunity to escape from poverty and fulfil their potential.
