break poverty's cycle



Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. Sponsoring children in need is breaking the cycle of poverty.  

Giving-Service Opportunity: Many members of First Pres sponsor children through Compassion, which also has many other critical programs such as mother and infant support, providing mosquito nets to prevent malaria, AIDS counseling, and student leadership development.
