Your sponsorship counts

We believe the Church is God’s chosen instrument of hope to the world, and the most effective, missionally aligned human development organisation on the planet. To this point, Hillsong and Compassion have been partnering together for over 19 Years, the impact of our partnership has multiplied with the sponsorship of over 100,000 children.

COVID-19 has not spared Uganda. Let's continue to make an impact by sponsoring children, making sure they are known, loved and protected.

Food packs when needed, with nutritious essential items like rice, eggs, meat, milk, corn, and dry goods.
Hygiene and sanitation supplies.
Personalised support when needed, like rent assistance, household items, emotional support and trauma counselling.
A watchful eye for child protection/abuse.

How you can pray

Thank you for praying for children and families in Uganda who have been impacted by COVID-19—and the local staff and churches who continue to serve them in difficult circumstances.

  • God’s peace and comfort would be with Kennedy before, during and after his operation.
  • Strength and encouragement as Lillian recovers from her heart operation. Pray that she wouldn’t have any lasting side effects, and she would be able to return to doing the things she loves.
  • Kisakye and Odalang would be able to have their needed heart operations soon.
  • God would continue to motivate and encourage Odongo, Madrine and Nekesa as COVID-19 caused them to begin to attend university classes online.
  • God would be with Violet’s family and the project staff as they try to find resources for Violet, who has cerebral palsy, so she can live and fulfill the purposes that God has for her.
  • Complete healing for Timothy, who was diagnosed with sickle cell.
  • God’s healing for Emmanuel and his mother as they recover injuries caused by accident.
  • God would use and bless the church partner staff as they desire to share God’s love with the children in their communities.
