Awesome group that makes a big difference in the areas that they serve.
Compassion Services is often the first organization with boots on the ground when a disaster occurs. They are quick to communicate how the money was spent, how many people were helped, etc., with pictures and real life stories. They are diligent to make sure that funds are used for the intended purpose. They keep a low overhead as well.
While a very small humanitarian organization, CSI has continued to give great "bang for the buck". CSI has been active both in North America and around the globe. They have maintained their focus and mission objectives while realizing they cannot do everything.
Great experience giving to CSI as well as working alongside them.
While in London, England I met a lady from Chile who had worked with CSI during the earthquake relief effort. She expressed to me that one of the most rewarding times of her life was when she was able to work with CSI on the ground directly affecting the lives of those in need.
One of the most important aspects of CSI's operations is how they get people on the ground involved in areas they can assist with. The more people we have involved in a relief effort the greater overall positive effect we can achieve.
When I donate to Compassion, I know my money is really being used to help people. Their disaster response teams are very quick to respond and emails keep donors like me updated on what current needs are. Follow up emails are sent too with pictures and a summary of what the team and donations were able to accomplish. This is truly living out faith and showing Jesus' love to those in need.
Love that this charity focuses on getting resources directly to the people in need, and works with local leaders to identify needs and distribute any resources.
Our church has given to/through CSI several times now, over several years. We have found them to be the quickest and most ethical solution in our effort to help our world deal with traumatic events. CSI communicates the need immediately, the progress and then turns around and documents the successes back to us. Victory Church of College Station, Texas loves CSI and will continue to support this very worthy cause.
It has been amazing to watch how God has used CSI to help the many people who have faced tragic events in their lives. I am praying that God will continue to lead this fine organization. I am proud to be part of this giving community of believers.
The staff at CSI is always helpful and answer questions in a timely manner. I can always be assured that my donation money is going where it is supposed to go, it is not being eaten up by corporate salaries and unnecessary expenses. Great people with a great heart and burden to help others!
Compassion Services Intl. is lightning fast in response times. They are excellent with accountability and followup. I know assuredly that when I give money to CSI that it will go to the needs requested and not be diminished by a lot of corporate overhead, etc. I am privileged to work with CSI, the hands and feet of Jesus on the globe today!
