2020 has been turned upside down by a global pandemic.
This is the story of God’s Church rising as one in 2020, united to see vulnerable children receive the spiritual, physical, socio-emotional and economic support they need to thrive.
Jesus is at the heart of Compassion. His love for the marginalised—and His power to change lives—are why Compassion exists. More than 2.1 million children have the chance to hear the life-changing message of His love thanks to the help of friends like you. He is the ultimate source of hope: both for the immediate and the eternal.
More than 8000 local Christian churches in Africa, Asia, Central America and South America are on the frontlines of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name—building relationships with children and families, meeting urgent nutrition and healthcare needs, encouraging and growing them spiritually.
More than 80,000 generous Australians like you help to meet the specific economic, physical, socio-emotional and spiritual needs of every individual sponsored child. As a sponsor, you’re personally connected with a boy or girl who knows your name and treasures the knowledge that you care about them.
Poverty looks different for each child, but our goals stay the same: good health, good skills, good relationships—and the opportunity to hear the Good News.

Mums & Babies
Melanie is passionate about nurturing mothers and babies—from Melbourne to Mbulu, Tanzania!
A renowned dietitian and influential speaker, Melanie funds a Compassion survival project to give vulnerable mums living in poverty a new hope.
Through access to prenatal care, birthing support and education, these mums have a community of support to share their trials and triumphs, to laugh and learn new skills together.
“I wanted to see [the work] with my own eyes,” says Melanie." I was blown away! It’s not just about good nutrition—it’s about education and long-term health for these mums. It turns their lives around."
