Warning: Cute overload ahead!

Who doesn’t love babies? They’re just too adorable. And since they’re so new and small, they need extra love and attention to stay healthy and grow.

Sadly, many babies born in poor countries don’t grow as healthy and strong as they should. So Compassion teams up with churches to keep babies healthy. The churches also help pregnant women and the adults who take care of the babies after they’re born. Let’s find out more about babies around the world and how Compassion helps them survive!
