Compassion International: Sponsor a Child in Poverty

This is an organization I’m very passionate about. This is the real Jesus–caring for children–the innocent and very vulnerable–in a kind, compassionate and faith driven way. Building up communities with well thought out, phased planning.

Whenever was poverty just about money–particularly generational poverty? If the problem was that simple, wouldn’t it have been solved ages ago? That’s like saying cancer is just about radiation—so much more goes into combating such a crippling disease.
