and for those of you in Australia you can also tune in to your local christian radio station (theres a link on the compassion webpage) or the Australian Christian channel and listen in as you are confronted by the issues and poverty that face these nations and the work that Compassion does in these areas. Have a little read about Haiti here.
Don't let this oppourtunity to make a difference in a family and small child's life pass you by! As soon as I got my first full time job I knew I wanted to sponsor a child and have been blessed to sponsor a sweet 5 year Halima from Malawi, Africa. Sponsorship is such a blessing both to the child, their family and to the sponsor. Through sponsorship Halima is now attending school (her parent's could not afford to send her before), and sunday school, and have been given items such as crops and seeds for their garden and I feel so blessed to know that little me has made such a big change to someone's world.
oh and ps. you can also check out the work that compassion do at their blog.
