Compassion Australia makes a difference to the lives of Children. Releasing Children from Poverty in Jesus Name is their mission statement and this they do well.  Here at RFS we are supporters of a number of sponsor children, 5 to be exact from Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, West Africa and Kenya.  We also have some of our staff supporting other children. Victor Bernard Katali was our first in 2003 from Tanzania and he is now almost 18 years of age.  Victor lives with his family in Tanzania.  We get regular letters from him (translated), and progress on his schooling results and other activities.  Over the years we have seen him grow from a little boy to a young man and before long he will leave the programme, having had learning and life opportunities that would not have been available to him without support.  We find this a real privilege to be able to make this contribution into the lives of our children.

Let me encourage you to check out www.compassion.com.au and see if you are challenged to help.  We have found Compassion to be very responsible and to operate with the greatest integrity.  Compassion International was founded in 1952 and Compassion Australia now supports over 100,000 children.
