Compassion International, one of the world’s largest Christian child development organizations, assists children who live in spiritual, physical, economic and social poverty. Compassion works with more than 65 denominations and thousands of indigenous church partners in Africa, Asia, Central and South America and the Caribbean.

Founded by Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean war orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training. Today, Compassion has touched the lives of more than one million children in more than 20 countries, enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
