... a message from CEO Justin Dowds. 

As the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) develops around the world, Compassion is doing everything it can to keep Compassion-supported children, Compassion staff, volunteers and church partners safe. They are working hard to minimise disruption to critical operations and ensure the children we serve remain known, loved and protected.

Our Sponsorship enables Elvis to receive:

  • Vocational training
  • Educational support and school uniforms
  • Love of a local Church
  • Letters translated into Spanish
  • Medical care and nutritional support.

We pray for Elvis, for his education, his faith and his future. 

The message from Compassion is... and whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him - Colossians 3:17 (NIV). They ensure that every Compassion-sponsored child is known, loved and protected.
