Does child sponsorship work? Meet Dr Jennifer Alverado - Compassion graduate and healthcare hero

Meet Dr Jennifer Alverado. She was sponsored through Compassion when she was only 5 years old. Now as an adult, she works as a paediatric gastroenterologist and volunteers for Compassion Ecuador’s tele-health service - a service that allows doctors to provide medical advice over the phone.

Dr Alverado credits the support she received from Compassion from such a young age, saying Compassion “helps you to be different, to have Christ in your heart as a child, to have different values and to become a different person in the future”.
