Review for COMPASSION SERVICES INTERNATIONAL, OFallon, MO, USA
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.
