2019 Christmas in JUlY
It is that time of year when we get to start shopping for over 60 children! Now is the best time to shop. You can help make Christmas special for a child with a donation of just $5! For every $5 donated, we will put your name on a Lego for the children to play with.
For Christmas, the children get a special meal, school uniform and shoes and school fees paid, a church and play outfit, undies and socks, toiletries and a face towel and towel (if money allows), and a small toy. The children do not get clothes throughout the year, so these are very special to them!
This year, if we raise enough funds, each child will receive a new mattress (called a "sponge" in eSwatini). These are very needed this year!
The caregivers and staff will also receive a special meal and food package for their family.
Go to our Donation Page or mail checks to Compassionate Life PO Box 358, Clio MI 48420.
2020 Swazi Team Trip
Compassionate Life, in partnership with New Covenant Church, will be going on an adventure to eSwatini, Africa in July 2020. In Africa, we will be working at El Shaddai Children's Home and the surrounding village.
We travel to eSwatini to build relationships and to help ourselves see our world differently. The work projects are important, but are secondary. The primary trip goal is to live compassionately and to what "Love Does".
"...Love is never stationary.
In the end, love doesn't keep thinking about it or planning for it.
Simply put: Love Does."
I'm interested! Now what?
