Every day, 2000 children die from waterborne diseases that are easily preventable*. This gift will help change this by providing children, families and communities with access to safe drinking water. Depending on the community, this could mean distributing water filters, drilling borehole wells or installing water tanks. The impact of clean water not only saves children’s lives; it means more time spent in school and the workforce, reduces the burden of healthcare costs, and builds a stronger economy for the community.
Help protect children by preventing the deadly diseases that steal millions of lives each year. Your gift will provide children with the vaccinations they need to grow up healthy and strong.
Your gift will provide toilets and wash stations to prevent disease and guard children’s dignity. You will be helping children stay healthy, while continuing to learn and grow.
This bundle is all about good health! Not only will you be preventing deadly diseases such as malaria, you’ll be enabling children to live healthy lives and maintain their gorgeous smiles!
We work closely with our church partners around the world to make sure the gifts we’ve selected will make a big difference in the lives of the children and families in their communities. However, if at the time of purchase there isn’t a need for your chosen gifts, the funds will go towards a comparable, more urgent initiative.
We are committed to ensuring that the gifts from our Gifts of Compassion catalogue facilitate good development work. This means responding to the changing needs of the children and families in Compassion’s program around the world. If at the time of purchase there isn’t a need for your chosen gift, the funds will go towards a comparable, more urgent initiative. For example, if there was no current need for chickens, then your funds may go towards a pig or another farm animal.
Gifts of Compassion are real goods and services given to children and families in Compassion child development centres around the world when you purchase an item from the Gifts of Compassion catalogue. For every Gift of Compassion you order, you will receive a gift card to personalise for your friends and loved ones.
Funds raised from the Gifts of Compassion catalogue are used to support Compassion's Critical Needs, which remove obstacles to children's development and implement preventative action. These interventions include providing safe water, disaster relief, emergency medical care, vocational training, infrastructure, and much more: all issues that need to be addressed for a child to be released from poverty.
Compassion Australia uses Gifts of Compassion funds to meet the project needs represented in the catalogue.
The gifts featured in the Gifts of Compassion represent initiatives Compassion carries out to address the needs of children that require support beyond sponsorship. As each country and community in the developing world has their 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.
For every Gift of Compassion you order, you will receive a beautiful gift card to personalise for your friends and loved ones. The amount you have donated will not be printed on the card.
Real goods and services represented by the Gift of Compassion item you order will be given to children and families supported by Compassion around the world.
