Releasing Children From Poverty in Jesus' Name
Information directly from Compassion International's website:
"We are the world’s leading authority in holistic child development through sponsorship".
"We are advocates for children, committed to Jesus Christ in all that we do".
How did Compassion come about?
"Since 1952 when Rev. Everett Swanson first flew to South Korea to minister to American troops fighting in the Korean War and felt compelled to help the orphans he saw on the streets, we have worked to help children realize their full potential and develop into all God intends them to be".
