Compassion International

Compassion’s work has grown from modest beginnings in South Korea in 1952 when American evangelist Rev. Everett Swanson felt compelled to help 35 children orphaned by the Korean conflict. Compassion International is a worldwide ministry 

seeking to release children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty and help them become responsible and fulfilled followers of Jesus. Calvary East Valley has partnered with Compassion to help start 3 Child Development Centers in Ghana, the Dominican Republic, and the Philippines. Many individuals from CEV also support children through monthly one-on-one sponsorships.
