Releasing children from poverty in Jesus Name

Over the last 70 years, Compassion revolutionized the fight against global poverty by partnering with local churches to meet the unique and urgent needs of children living in poverty. Today, Compassion partners with over 8,000 local churches in 29 countries to deliver a proven holistic child development program to more than 2 million infants, children and youth.

CSC partners with Compassion with a 5-church community in Mexico sponsoring children and empowering the churches to make an impact in their greater community. They also support a community child Survival program in Mexico. The Child Survival program provides medical attention and nutrition in order for babies and toddlers to grow up healthy and interventions such as job skills trainings for moms to provide for their babies.
