Gift Description:
$4 protects one child from parasites. Millions of children suffer intestinal infections caused by parasites. Parasites rob children of nutrients, exacerbate malnutrition, stunt physical development, and result in poor school attendance and performance. But families of children in Compassion’s programs receive training to prevent parasites, and medication is made available to treat those suffering from intestinal parasites. Help prevent and treat parasites that rob children of nutrients, stunt growth and result in poor academic performance.

Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty, with the goal of turning each child into a responsible and fulfilled adult. It's a long-term approach, beginning in some cases with prenatal care and going all the way through leadership development for qualified young adults.
