Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, releasing them from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. Founded by Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean war orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training. Today, Compassion helps more than 600,000 children in more than 20 countries. All of Compassion’s programs are rooted in Christian child development and child advocacy. It’s truly a long-term process, beginning in some cases with prenatal care and going all the way through leadership development for qualified young adults.
