Compassion International, is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult.
Compassion's work has grown from its modest beginnings in South Korea in 1952 by Evangelist Everett Swanson. Today Compassion International is a worldwide ministry where millions of children are now reaping the benefits of one man's clear, God-given vision.
"Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done." - Proverbs 19:17
