Compassion Canada is one of the world's leading child development organizations. They partner with the local church in 26 countries to end poverty in the lives of children and their families.
As of today, more than 1.5 million children and their families are discovering lives full of promise and purpose as they develop in all areas of their lives (minds, bodies and relationships) while most importantly, discovering Gods' love for them in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
When you sponsor a child you will receive a photograph of your child and information about his or her community and country. You will also receive regular letters from your sponsored child and a yearly update from a community leader; access to an online community for Compassion supporters and Compassion Today, a magazine that shares stories of children's lives being changed.
Your relationship with your sponsored child can change their life...
You can write to your child online and send a picture, card or paper present; pray regularily for them and their family, and even meet your sponsored child on a Compassion exposure trip or an individual visit.
As the Christmas season approaches upon us quickly, please consider sponsoring a child through Compassion Canada! Please visit www.compassion.ca/sponsor-a-child to be introduced to a child waiting to be sponsored today. You and your family will be glad you did!
