Family Life Radio Listeners Help 1,037 Children in Haiti

As part of a Compassion International Fundraiser

TUCSON, AZ (May 25, 2023) — One in six children across the globe live in extreme poverty and are without access to food and health care. Thanks to the listeners at Family Life Radio (FLR), over 1,000 children will now be supported as part of pledges made during a recent Compassion International sponsorship fundraiser. That’s an increase of almost 200 children over last year’s sponsorship campaign.

Access to safe water, food, education and medical care are just some of the many benefits a child who is being sponsored will receive. During the three-day fundraiser, listeners called in to help change the lives of children who are living in poverty in Haiti – one of the poorest countries in the world. Skyrocketing inflation and violence have left families living in this area with no access to food, clean water, shelter and more.

“We are overwhelmed at how the Family Life Radio audience stepped up to help the over 80,000 children on Compassion’s waiting list who have been in need of hope,” said Mike Kankelfritz, director of programming and morning show host at FLR.

“I’ve been doing this a long time, and it’s always amazing to see how God uses our friends at Family Life Radio to change the lives of precious children around the world. What an honor to be a part of the miracle of hope!” said Dave Kirby, Chief Creative Officer at Vidare Creative.

The team at Vidare Creative joined with the FLR on air hosts to run the fundraiser.
