Where Most Needed
In times of immediate need, Compassion steps in to help children
Poverty leaves children without any safety net or protection, so when unforeseen circumstances arise, there is often little hope for recovery.
Through generous supporters, Compassion church partners work effectively to address the most pressing needs of children in our programs.
The Where Most Needed fund is used to meet a variety of needs that have been identified by our local church partners. It will bring resource and empowerment to every nation we work in.
Compassion’s Where Most Needed fund can be distributed between other Critical Needs and respond in circumstances where additional help for those funds is needed. This includes:
- Water and Sanitation
- Income Generation
- Education and Training
- Mums and Babies
- Global Advocacy
- Disaster Relief
- Highly Vulnerable Children
- Indigenous Initiative in Australia
- Support for children waiting for a sponsor
