Featured Partner: Compassion International
What is Compassion?
Compassion means “to suffer with” and is an emotional response of sympathy. But it’s not just a feeling. The feeling is combined with a desire to help. Because we have compassion, we want to take action and help the person who is suffering.
Notice the last word of the definition above — “with.” We are called to suffer with someone, to suffer together. This is what differentiates compassion from empathy.
Who is Compassion International?
Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult.
Compassion's work has grown from modest beginnings in South Korea in 1952 when American evangelist Rev. Everett Swanson felt compelled to help 35 children orphaned by the Korean conflict. Today it is a worldwide ministry where millions of children are now reaping the benefits of one man's clear, God-given vision.
Compassion. A movement. A calling. A cause. A people.
Compassion is global, reflecting the beautiful diversity of God's kingdom. We are collaborative, depending on teamwork and partnership. We are respectful, protecting the divine character in everyone. We strive to always be grace filled, kind, forgiving and merciful. Our child development programs provide opportunities that encourage healthy development in four areas — spiritual, physical, social and economic.
Holistic Child Development Through Sponsorship
We are the world’s leading authority in holistic child development through sponsorship. Holistic child development means we begin, in some cases, with prenatal care and go all the way through leadership development for qualified young adults. It means we take a long-term approach to what we do and go beyond simple involvement in the lives of the children and families we serve.
