Compassion is a charity that helps to release children from Poverty in 25 of the poorest countries worldwide.

Here at Greasby Methodist we have supported two boys for the last six years from the generous giving of our members.  Our two boys are called Joseph who is aged 13 years from Tanzania and Amos who is 9 years old from Uganda .

Every few months we get wonderful letters from them telling us about their favourite activities, their families and their projects where they go to school, get regular medical reviews and make friends.  Over the years we have been able to support not just the children and their families but also give donations to support the work of Compassion so the money is directed to where the need is greatest.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.
