Review for COMPASSION SERVICES INTERNATIONAL, ST. CHARLES, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.
