Poverty– Cause of the Month April 2016

0

CompassionPoverty is a state of lacking the necessities for survival that many of us take for granted. In its most extreme conditions men, women and children are suffering and at mortal risk due to lack of food, water, sanitation, clothing, shelter, medical assistance and education. As Christians, we are concerned about all forms of suffering, oppression and poverty. We encourage Christians everywhere to do their part in obeying God’s call to embrace a lifestyle of sacrifice and service in every area of their lives, whether for the local or global poor.

Eyes once dim with fear become bright with promise. Children live as children for the first time in their lives. Hope grows in a heart that had only known despair. At Compassion International, we take seriously the call to care for the “least of these.” We minister to the physical, intellectual, and spiritual needs of some of the world’s most desperate children. Our ministry is focused on the individual child and his or her development. By working holistically with individual children to address their spiritual, economic, social and physical needs, we present every child with an opportunity to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.
