      Pros

      Grateful that Compassion is growing its capabilities and expanding its reach to holistically serve children and their families who are living in poverty, especially in this COVID season. In the United State and other developed countries, vaccines are starting to save many lives and many see light at the end of the tunnel. In the developing world, the suffering continues on top of the already painful circumstances that come with poverty. Keep working to reach more!

      Cons

      More people need to know about Compassion and how its strategy is discipleship through local church partnerships.
