BEING SPONSORED HELPS CHILDREN IN NEED. Children like Julius.

JULIUS'S STORY

When their mother died, Julius's grandma took the seven year old and his younger brother, Joseph, in. Their grandma worked hard in their Kenyan community as a farm labourer, but her small wage meant she struggled to put food on the table for her two growing grandsons.

LETTERS BUILD RELATIONSHIPS. And you built a lot!

huge difference.

LOVE LETTERS

In financial year 2014, Australian sponsors sent over 162,000 letters to sponsored children around the world. Three very different people: a 70-year-old translator from Thailand, a young boy from Honduras, and a university student from Brazil describe the impact that sponsors' letters have had on their lives.

From Tim Hanna

What an amazing and humbling year this one has been. Again and again, I’ve seen and heard of the incredibly generous and selfless ways that Compassion supporters across Australia have made a difference in the lives of the world’s most vulnerable: children living in poverty.

As I look back on our biggest revenue year yet, I can only be thankful. I’m humbled by our supporters, who continue to give even in difficult times; by our staff who consistently bring their best efforts to work; by our volunteers and Advocates, who tirelessly and selflessly speak up for children in need. Most of all, I am thankful to God, who continues to show His grace and love to each of us—particularly vulnerable children living in poverty.
