The Medical Need

There is no medical safety net or 24-hour doctor on call when you live in poverty. When a child needs access to urgent medical treatment, a parent may have to decide between taking them to a hospital or feeding their family for a week.

The Medical fund is a lifeline to children in Compassion’s programs facing ongoing sickness, pain and even death. It supports children whose medical needs go beyond what sponsorship can cover. Whether it’s a critical illness, an accident or an infection, your gift will help stop the suffering of a child in poverty.
