Friday Feature!! - Kader, Kwaku, Mubarek, Daniel, Dushimimana, & Francisca

Compassion is working hard to lower the prevalence of HIV/AIDS, especially in Africa. Read this blog post about the work Compassion is doing in Ghana to help with education, prevention, and treatment.

Have a heart for Africa? The following children live in AIDS-infected areas and have been waiting for sponsors for over a year! Save these children and end their wait today!


Meet Kader!
Kader is six-years-old and lives near Bobo-dioulasso, Burkina Faso, an AIDS-infected area and an area prone to exploitation and abuse. He lives with both parents (both are sometimes employed) and four siblings. Most adults in this area are unemployed but some work as day laborers, farmers, market traders or in domestic services and earn about $40 per month. Kader helps his family by caring for children and running errands. For fun, he enjoys playing soccer and playing with marbles. Change his story today!

And if none of these beautiful children speak to your heart, I invite you to find one that does. Have a heart for Africa? Sponsor a child in an AIDS-infected area.

As always, if you are unable to sponsor a child, please pray for these children and that they will find loving sponsors soon.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Hi Carley,
    My name is Dan Moen and I'm a fairly new Compassion advocate. I was on the Northwest Region Facebook page and saw your post right below mine. I noticed your blogsite link and here I am. I just wanted to say that I think you've got a great blog and that your also a very good writer. Please don't ever get discouraged when you think that no one is reading your posts or leaving comments. You never know when God is going to call someone to help change the life of a little boy or girl by sending them to your blog. He is using us for His purposes even when we don't feel very useful.
    Keep it up. Dan

    p.s. your "Letter to God" post was very encouraging to me.

    p.s.s. Isn't Compassion an amazing organization?
