Looking To the Future

How cute are 2-year-old Emely, left, and 3-year-old Madison? They are graduating from Compassion’s Survival initiative, which helps babies in poverty and the grown-ups who care for them. They will now join the Child Sponsorship Program and start going to a Compassion center at their church in El Salvador!
