Compassion, International

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.

Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.

Today, Compassion helps more than 1 million children in 25 countries.
AMY GRANT has been a long time supporter of Compassion International.  She and her family have sponsored individual children, visited some of their sponsored children in Guatamala, and she has been a vocal advocate of the one-on-one sponsorship program during many of her national tours.  In July 2009, Amy and all of her children traveled to Uganda with Compassion International and saw first hand the work that Compassion is doing for children affected by poverty, HIV-AIDS, and malaria.
