The effects of poverty are devastating and affect every area of a child’s life. For babies, children and students living in poverty, there is no safety net; they often live in unstable environments. When crisis hits their lives, they often have little hope for recovery.

Critical Needs provides solutions to meet children’s needs by building upon the Child Sponsorship Program. Every child will benefit from a Critical Need during their time in Compassion’s program. Your support for Critical Needs helps provide customised care for all registered children, allows for increased preventative action, and continues Compassion’s ministry to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.

Donate to the most urgent Critical Need.


Give to needs you are passionate about.

Sometimes the challenges faced by children living in poverty go beyond what child sponsorship can provide for. Your donation can help meet these needs.
