The Compassion UK & Ireland Podcast

The Compassion UK and Ireland podcast tells the unseen story of Compassion’s ministry, going deep on topics that prevent children reaching their full potential and the incredible difference local churches are making around the world. Hosted by Janay Alam Sheikh, who was sponsored through Compassion’s programme as a child, we unpack some of the complex issues that impact global poverty and how Compassion and churches globally work holistically to lift children out of poverty. We also get an opportunity to explore how we can pray into these situations.
