Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
Every year, the United Nations dedicates one day to raise awareness on global poverty. This year’s theme is “Leave no one behind: think, decide and act together against extreme poverty.” At Compassion International, we dedicate our LIVES to the very same thing. We’ve been marking off the days on our calendar for today to come and, finally, the wait is over! It’s kind of a big deal!
Today, in partnership with Hillsong, we want to introduce you to Halena and her family in Indonesia. They have been waiting for a long, long time for someone to sponsor her. They have been marking off days and weeks on their calendar in anticipation.
