As a clinician working in Nepal, I observed volunteers from this organisation engaging in risky behaviour, they mean well, but they are not fully trained in disaster relief. Its volunteers are hospital staff, with no experience in the field, going along on a trip, to feel useful.

I worked with CSI in Haiti, summer 2012. Yes even 2 years after the disaster, they were still working to help the many people in need. A true VOLUNTEER organization, that anyone can be proud to be a part of. Whether volunteer, donor, or involved in another aspect of CSI, you won't be disappointed. To this day it remains the one time I really felt I made a difference. Coming home at the end of my time was hard, knowing there was still so much to do. Thankfully CSI continues to send teams there, and around the world, to wherever they are needed.

I have been in Haiti with CSI. They are all about serving those in need! There are no 6 figure incomes for executives or any such foolishness. They put together teams of willing health professionals who finance their own way. Donations made to them go to providing direct needs such as medicines for those served.

I am confident in CSI to inform me where there is a need to help the hurting, whether in our own nation or on the other side of the world and in their use of donations they receive to do exactly that to the fullest of their ability. It is truly their mission and calling.

Hands down the best charity group of this kind out there. Getting your money where it can do the most good for fellow man. This is not a hype based organization, but a service oriented effort making a real difference. Keep up the good work.

I usually find out about various disasters and needs through their correspondence before I hear about them on the news. They are informative on the needs of others and will let us know how they were able to help.

CSI is an organization that helps a wide diversity of people. They help on international and national levels. Whenever there is a natural disaster CSI is there to help. They communicate a need and follow up with newsletters showing how they were able to help.

I feel confident when I donate to CSI that my money is being put to good use for the exact purposes it was solicited for. This is a wonderful Christian based organization that does much good around the world! I'm always happy to donate when I receive word of a need CSI is focusing on. They are also prompt in sending donation receipts for tax purposes.

I was privileged to take a trip with CSI in 2011 to Haiti. I was able to experience service to others like never before. This non-profit works tirelessly to see that a positive impact is made wherever they go. I appreciate their constant effort to make a difference and change lives.

If you have the opportunity to be a part of the work CSI is doing, please do so. Changing lives through service and monetary gifts never grows old.

Thanks CSI for all you do!

Notices from Compassion still grab my attention because of the desperate situations they address. I am thankful for the opportunities to be a small part of ministering to those in the midst of tragedy that this organization makes possible. Whether it be the Ebola crisis, devastating floods in Serbia, or refugees fleeing religious persecution, I'm confident that CSI is using donations to be God's hand extended to the "least of these" around the world. Therefore, I love being able to give more to this crucial work through AmazonSmile now.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Pour many millions of dollars into it

I always feel a sense of security that my donations to CSI are used wisely for their intended purposes. The kind of work done by this organization is demonstrating God's heart in helping those in greatest need around the world. I am impressed with how well CSI utilizes its limited resources and its overall level of outreach.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

infuse their budget with many millions of dollars.
