Haiti - Compassion International

There are so many organizations that are doing relief work in Haiti right now. Some are secular and some are Christian and some are reputable and some are scams.

We as givers have lots of choices in this area and our family is choosing Compassion International for four reasons.

1. We have supported a child in Honduras for several years and I feel confident that Compassion International is a solid organization. A very small percentage of donations goes to administrative costs. They are not a overnight scam organization.
2. Compassion is a first responder with staff on the ground laready in Haiti. They have contacts and working relationships with local churches and organizations.
3. Compassion works with children. If you know me you know this is a must.
4. IN JESUS' NAME: Compassion International does not accept government funds which could at times restrict our ability to meet the physical and spiritual needs of children in Jesus' name. Because of this Compassion International's primary financial support comes from individual donors.
