Compassion International, Inc.
November 26, 2012

I think Compassion is a wonderful organization doing tremendous work. We've sponsored a young man from India for almost 6 years now and we have really developed a meaningful connection with him. I feel very certain our money is being used well and we hear from him frequently (we write to him frequently as well). This has been a wonderful blessing to our family. It's beautiful to see yearly photos of how this young man has grown. I did not know at the time we sponsored him in 2007 how Compassion worked. I have since learned that Compassion requires my child to come to a church based center in order to receive services that my sponsorship dollars help provide. I am a Christian and believe spiritual care is very important in helping children thrive. But I prefer World Vision's model of community development. World Vision is a Christian aid agency that helps build sustainable communities and sponsorship dollars fund entire communities.

WORLD VISION INTERNATIONAL
November 26, 2012

We sponsor 2 children with World Vision and love the work they're doing. We do not hear from these children directly very often, but we do receive updates from their communities. These children are in very remote parts of Africa--our little girl is from the Congo. Some similar Christian charities lack the capacity to create infrastructure in such inaccessible places. Proud to stand with World Vision in the Congo which has had 2 civil wars that have killed over 6 million people. Violence is still ongoing in parts of that country. Love that World Vision is working to create self-sustaining communities by partnering with those communities to prioritize needs and create local solutions-- a hand up--not a hand out. Finally my sponsorship dollars not only benefit our sponsored children--they benefit the ENTIRE community. We also sponsor with another Christian group from Colorado that requires children to come to their church based centers. World Vision is a Christian humanitarian group that helps everyone regardless of their religion. I think this is an especially powerful way to share God's love.
