Compassion brings ministry to Bangladesh

By June 30, 2004

Bangladesh (MNN)–Significant ministry growth has allowed Compassion International to expand its work with children in poverty by opening a new office in Bangladesh. There are about 75% of children below the age of 12 years are malnourished and 85% of the population lives in poverty.
By partnering with local churches in the community they intend to bring hope to the children of the country. The task now is to find the poorest children in the country to participate in Compassion’s Ministry. Soon sponsors will be able to support these children in Bangladesh.

Through its valued partnership with local churches, Compassion is able to fulfill its mission to help release children from poverty in Jesus’ name and enable them to become responsible, fulfilled adults.

Currently, Compassion serves more than 140,000 poor children in 4 counties in the south and southeast region of Asia. Bangladesh will be the fifth in the region.
