The gifts featured in Gifts of Compassion represent initiatives Compassion carries out to address the needs of children beyond sponsorship. As each country and community in the developing world has its own unique challenges to address, what these initiatives look like and how much they cost can vary. This means your donation will be pooled with others to fund an initiative.
No. Gifts of Compassion are different to the gifts you can send your sponsored child. Funds raised through Gifts of Compassion are pooled to support a range of Critical Needs that benefit many children and families and can't be directed to an individual child.
However, you can choose to send a gift specifically for your sponsored child by giving a child gift, family gift and/or birthday gift. One hundred per cent of these gifts will directly benefit your sponsored child and their family.
