Upcoming Trips

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Compassion Australia has made the difficult decision to cancel all trips to Compassion field countries until further notice.

We've made this decision in line with the Australian Government's advice and restrictions on international travel and to allow our local church partners to prioritise care for Compassion assisted children and their families.

Seeing the ministry of churches in developing countries firsthand changes hearts and lives—and we can’t wait for the day for travel to be possible again!

Until then, we want to bring the field to you. Here you can find an update on COVID-19, get a glimpse into the Child Sponsorship Program and read an encouraging story from each country we work in.

What Travellers are Saying

Mallory

“I leave happy—happy with joy. I promise to continue writing letters for Elian and his family. This experience changed my heart and my life. I am very grateful to God, and every day I will continue praying for my Elian.”

MALLORY

Ash

“I cried as I hugged them all goodbye. It’s a very surreal feeling, meeting a child and their family and going into their home. It’s hard to leave as you don’t know if or when you’ll be able to return and see them again.”

ASH

Paul

“It was like we had known each other ever since she was born, and that we had been apart for so long. This is, for us, a dream come true: to visit the girl who has been in our prayers, on our hearts and in our thoughts for 11 years.”
