Hear from boss of Compassion
COMPASSION Australia chief executive officer Tim Hanna will share his emotions for children living in poverty, at a special evening event in Coffs Harbour tonight.
The free event is open to the community and is a unique opportunity to hear personal stories and life-changing moments from Mr Hanna's time as CEO of the fourth largest charity in Australia.
As a pastor in Brisbane for 30 years, he has dedicated his life to giving hope to people and communities. In 2010, he brought this passion to Compassion Australia when he joined as CEO.
"I've seen children living under the blight of poverty, and I'm committed to seeing these children given hope and opportunities for the future," Mr Hanna said.
"I love what I do; each day I'm part of bringing together children who desperately need hope and connecting them with a sponsor who loves, cares and prays," he said.
Over the past four years Mr Hanna has visited 11 field countries, but it's the individual children who make a lasting impact.
From meeting many children - such as Magda in Guatemala, who graduated from university as a social worker and leads a Compassion centre herself - the stories are close to Tim's heart.
"Each child has a story, and Compassion is committed to giving them a voice," he said..
Join Mr Hanna for coffee and dessert at Coffs Harbour Community Village, 22 Earl St, at 7pm today. For more information, visit http://www.compassion.com.au/timtour.
