I am able to personally e mail and get a response back right away for any questions or concerns I have. CSI is great to keep me updated with videos on how their efforts are making a difference. They are great to go where they are needed most and when they are needed. They are relevant and quick to respond to those in need when they need it. I feel confident that the dollars I'm giving are maximized for the effort and I know they fast and pray over what they do. It is more than just money : it is heart and soul and power and passion for those in need for JESUS' NAME!

Compassion Services International does excellent work around the world. They show love, compassion, and genuine concern for those they aid. CSI does an excellent job at keeping donors and the general public informed of trips/projects they are compiling and the need for volunteers. Their follow-up reports are excellent and timely. CSI is definitely worthy of donations so they can continue their ministry to those impacted by traumatic events.

It's often hard for me to determine which charities and non profit groups to donate to. Having been on numerous humanitarian aid trips as an RN to Central American countries and Haiti, I have seen people give to organizations that don't benefit the cause and people to whom they are giving. With Compassion Services International, I can know for certain that they are dedicated to helping others around the world with my donation! Thank you CSI!

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.

I enjoy giving through CSI because I know the hard earned money I give will be used wisely to benefit great needs. I can't be everywhere, but I can give to those who can be or who are in need.

It's a privilege to have the means to give money where it's needed, but a donor must choose carefully. Some organizations are very top heavy in salaries, which means my hard earned money isn't going to help a cause, but to the income of a high ranking official. I enjoy giving to CSI because I know my dollar puts feet on the ground, food in the stomachs, and medical assistance quickly and efficiently. As long as I can, I hope to continue giving to CSI.

CSI stays on point by helping with current and relevant needs. I have been impressed with their worldwide scope of vision and service. They have proven to be able to bring together a wide range of resources to help those affected by disaster and to aid in the disaster recovery.

I have observed this humanitarian organization from its beginning and it has without question served a great need to assist those who have been devastated by weather disasters. I commend them for their dedication to excellence and exceptional response when the need is made know all over the world.

CSI continues to impress me! I appreciate the opportunity they gave me to be involved in a small way with a great, ongoing relief work for the volcano victims of Guatemala. I’m especially grateful for their intervention on behalf of those suffering through severe famine in parts of West Africa. 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. Several months following the devastating hurricanes, it has also been no small encouragement to see them honor their commitment to providing continued support in the Carribean.

Looking to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, I revisited CSI after a long period of not being involved with their work (no fault of their's). The game plan on the website and their disaster relief experience convinced me to make my initial donation for Texas through CSI.

As the recovery was still just beginning, I considered what other options might make my dollars most effective for the people in need. I eventually called CSI and Michelle gave me all the details of their operations in the Harvey-affected region as they prepared to be on the scene ASAP in the wake of Hurricane Irma. My decision was made after hearing about the coordination of these projects and long-term commitment to the impacted areas in different states, etc. I have since made two donations and plan to make another today for the Caribbean!

This small organization continues to show a remarkable ability to make good use of its material and human resources to serve the hurting.

CSI was instrumental in the delivery of relief and construction supplies to the Golden Triangle area (Beaumont, Orange, Port Arthur, Texas) in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. This ministry has helped people get back on their feet and headed to recovery in the aftermath of a horrific disaster. Our hats are off to them!

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.
