What is Compassion Sunday?

Poverty robs children of their basic rights—to an education, healthcare, self-belief and hope for their future. But more powerful than the lies of poverty are the hope of Jesus, the care of their local church and the encouragement of a sponsor.

Compassion Sunday is an opportunity for you and your church to find sponsors for children and give a hope more powerful than poverty.
