The CSI (Compassion Services International) team, has been an incredible BLESSING to the people of Fiji during our seasons of greatest need.

When hurricanes battered our beautiful Island nation it was CSI that was first in line, immediately at the ready for whatever our most urgent need at the moment might have been. From water, groceries, and toiletries to helping with building supplies for temporary shelters and assisting with the rebuilding process to help get us back on our feet again.

They were even there for us when Fiji was crippled a severe COVID-19 outbreak like so many other countries around they world. Yet in spite of the massive needs globally, they were still able to find a way to help as they always do. When their assistance arrived, it brought with it a restored sense of HOPE among the people, that even though we were isolated the helping hands of CSI seem to find their way to us just the same. We were in crisis but they proved once again that we were not alone.

We here at the United Pentecostal Church of Fiji are so deeply appreciative and proud of all the wonderful work the CSI team has done, not only in Fiji but around the world. We will continue to partner with and support the wonderful organization, that can always be counted on when the dark days of life encroach upon us from time to time.

May God richly bless CSI and all the wonderful work they do!!!

I’m proud to support CSi. This is a non profit you can be assured is doing what they say- compassionately caring for others when they need it most. Knowing the people behind the scenes gives me confidence in where my dollars go- seeing their faces and places is awesome- not just strangers! Most importantly knowing how much praying is done for these people, places, needs and souls!

I was moved in 2020 by all the humanitarian work that was being done by Compassion Services International. Week after week, I followed updates about CSI helping those hardest hit by Covid/ lock downs, and natural disasters. They were not only meeting desperate needs but doing so in an ethical and respectful way. I keep being impressed at their pursuits to impact communities through education and medical help, as well. I give to CSI because they value the entire person and demonstrate the best of humanity.

This non-profit organization is so awesome. It has completely changed my life. Not in the way you might think. Unfortunately I have not got to go on a mission with them yet, though I truly hope I do get to work with them someday. One of the amazing leaders from this organization was an instructor at a missions training seminar that I attended. She told me things about myself that I never even realized and opened my eyes to what God truly has seen me as this whole time. If it wasn't for her I would still be seeing myself as not good enough for missions. Now I realize that nobody is but with God's help and through God's instruction he can make us good enough for whatever he wants to use us for.

I love to see the way CSi works with the Nations that seem to be the most desperate for assistance. Each time I give, I see stories of lives that have received hope and help on a level that is truly life changing. I love that CSi has partnerships with many workers in parts of the world I might never visit. At least I can make a difference, even from a distance.

I have worked with CSI for nearly 20 years in different capacities and can say that CSI does more with less resources than seems possible. CSI has been active globally and the limited resources have forced a more focused, strategic approach to disasters.

Compassion Services has been very instrumental in coming to the aid of our missions in the Dominican Republic and the Leeward Islands during times of disaster and need. A group of volunteer doctors and nurses from CSI provided a 2-day wellness clinic in the islands of St. Kitts and Nevis. Also, during the pandemic, we received a generous donation from CSI and were able to provide much needed food and supplies to various families and communities who were unable to work and without any sources of help. We have also benefited from their donation of funds to purchase goats for pastors' families. This helps provide families in rural areas with milk and food. We are thankful for the help and support of Compassion Services International and for the many lives that have been blessed by their giving!

There are so many testimonials of representatives offering food and resources to those that were at the very end of their resources. One lady was taken to the Doctor by a representative and the doctor said that if she had not come in that day - she would have lost her life. The stories and reach of CSi goes on an on.

I’ve had the absolute pleasure of serving and working alongside Compassion Services International while providing health education and awareness during health fair screenings to communities, and while providing disaster relief in the Bahamas during Hurricane Dorian. I can honestly say you won’t find an organization more dedicated, committed, and motivated to bringing hope and help with a goal of not only meeting the physical need of an individual, but meeting their spiritual and emotional needs as well. There’s no need too small, and no ask too great where they won’t step in,..and the impact and difference they make during every encounter is profound. I’m thankful for the opportunity to work alongside a team with a heart for Jesus. The care and compassion with which they serve every individual is admirable, inspiring, a constant reminder and challenge to us all.

My experience with CSI has been many! Each experience has opened my eyes to a bigger world than what is around me. It all started with lots of prayer, next was a trip to Africa to help see things from a nurses point of view, ladies conference booth, visiting other states to work the CSI booth which helps raise money, make connections, & reach those that have the same desire to help CSI! While in Africa getting to meet the people and see first hand the corn mills, wells, Bible School, & church’s and know it’s where our money goes made my heart happy & has been life changing!! This nonprofit organization is one that I believe in it’s mission, work, & future! You should too!

I joined CSI as a volunteer and went on a trip with some of the nurses and director, Cylinda, and it was amazing. The people involved are THE REAL deal, and I mean that. Truly passionate as well as compassionate about everything they are doing. Nothing is done for personal gain, but to help those in need. There are so many areas that this organization this area is apart of and I’m super excited to see where they will be going in the future. They also make it so easy for people with no experience to get involved whether on the field or from your home. Truly an amazing work. I only see growth in their future.

I have been acquainted with the activities and services of Compassion Services International (CSI) for many years. CSI is an outstanding group in my estimation for the following reasons: 1) the competency of those who run the program. My work overseas in Asia involved dealing with several major natural disasters (Tsunamis, earthquakes and floods, etc.). On each occasion I called upon CSI for assistance. Not only did they respond, they also sent in the right kind of teams to assist. 2) the coordination of CSI resources with my resources on the ground. CSI always worked hand in hand. 3) the prompt responses and instant communication made the whole process of bringing relief so much more stress free. My work in Asia is made so much easier when disaster strikes knowing that I can instantly be in touch with this great organization, for which I am truly grateful, 4) I have found CSI to be extremely aware of its financial responsibility and I have noticed that it is extremely careful in its use of funds, always serving the bigger picture, yet at times assisting individuals when even one life is threatened by disaster, and 5) CSI has proven its ability to do care prevention in places where medical facilities are limited.

I have had the privilege to work with Compassion Services International from its inception 30 years ago. As missionaries for 23 years appointed to Costa Rica a country that has many natural disasters I called on CSi for help and they responded. The help came in the form of finances to rebuild after hurricanes, earthquakes and floods. Food and clothing were distributed on many occasions to those who had lost everything. CSi helped desperate situations to have a glimmer of hope.
In 2012 we were appointed to serve as what is called Regional Directors with Global Missions and that increased the needs. Now I have all of Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean Islands and all of South America. The needs are many. There has been request for humanitarian aid due to the Covid19 situation wrecking all the economies in this area. CSi has responded and literally thousands of men, women and children have been helped.
CSi is a vital service to the area I supervise. There have been Medical Clinics in many countries after disasters have struck as well as clinics in countries that have limited access to medical services. As its name reflects it is an arm of compassion in dire situations. I am grateful to CSi for the many times they have responded to my request. I will call on them in the future because the needs are like the waves of the sea, they just keep coming in.
If we lived in a perfect world where there were no disasters or problems than CSi would not be necessary. Since that is not the case then CSi is extremely important to me in the work I do to help me help those who have no where to turn for their basic needs when disasters strike and governments fail.

CSI is quick to respond when a need arises. They have been very beneficial in helping ease the pain and send required assistance in multiple countries across the world when the needs arise. Compassion Services help humanity heal by sending aide in the form of food, funds and helping hands in countries stricken by disasters, poverty and other losses due to famine and natural weather occurrences. Humanitarian needs are met and hearts are encouraged. I have been involved in many medical tours and found it to be indescribably rewarding to help those in need.

Dr. Camra Faulkner’s heartfelt article was a powerful eye-opener to the seriousness of the situation. If not for CSI, I would not have alerted to this hunger crisis.

On October 20, 2017 the lives of millions of people in Puerto Rico changed. We were hit by a category 4 Hurricane. Compassion Services had boots in the ground within a few days after the disaster. They were diligent to get much needed aid in and Relief came in quickly on boats and small aircraft. While other agencies struggled to get aid into the island Compassion Services thought out of the box and was able to get food, medical supplies, generators in quickly. Being the logistic coordinator for our organization we were amazed while other groups were not
receiving any assistance we were able to reach out to many in need with water, first aid supplies, tarps, batteries, cleaning supplies and containers of food. We are indeed thankful to all who give .Compassion Services is the real deal. If you want your money to get needed supplies this is the go to group to invest in. Compassion Services indeed serves.
