Heart of Compassion

Imagine if a Compassion child needed life-saving surgery, and the $41 ($38usd) wasn't enough to provide this?

Imagine if this was your Compassion child?

There is no corner on earth that I wouldn't go to for my Compassion kids... so when I heard about this sweet boy, I knew I wanted to help, because it could just as easily have been one of our own Compassion kids. I know my contribution will be in good hands -- in God's hands.


Shaun Groves, a Compassion Artist, Blogger, Advocate and a man who inspires and leads to God by example, has shared a story about his son's Sponsor Child, Achile. Here is what he wrote on his blog post:

"My son's sponsored child, Achile, was born with a cluster of heart defects called tetralogy of Fallot. First diagnosed at age three, he’s been in pain ever since, unable to attend school regularly.

Compassion has provided medical care for Achile for the last two years at the National Teaching Hospital Yalgado Ouedraogo in Burkina Faso in Western Africa. However, doctors there now believe his condition necessitates an urgent heart surgery which is not possible in Burkina Faso. Achile has been transported to a specialized hospital in India for the life-saving operation that will cost an estimated $20,449."

Any money raised in excess of the surgery costs will help provide emergency medical needs for other children also facing extreme medical conditions, via the Compassion Medical Assistance Fund.

Someday, that could be your Compassion child.

Give generously.

Give with love.

Give hope.

May many hearts of compassion come together for this precious child.
