Compassion UK

Compassion is an international Christian child development and child advocacy ministry. Partnering with local churches, they are committed to the spiritual, economic, social and physical development of children living in extreme poverty in 26 countries, enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Compassion's work began in South Korea in 1952 when American evangelist Rev. Everett Swanson felt compelled to help 35 children orphaned by the Korean conflict.

Today they have a worldwide ministry where over one million children are now reaping the benefits of one man's clear, God-given vision.

Our founder was inspired by Matthew 15:32 where Jesus says, 'I have compassion for these people - I do not want to send them away hungry' (NIV).

From those humble beginnings, Compassion has become an international Christian child development and child advocacy ministry. Partnering with local churches, they are committed to the spiritual, economic, social and physical development of children living in extreme poverty in 26 countries, enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Sponsorship is done by individual church members, and there are about six members, each sponsoring one or two children, and providing them with funding, letters and small presents.
