Expose kids to life in a developing country through Compassion Experience

Compassion ExperienceWant your children to understand what it’s like to live in a developing country? Now they can without leaving Maryland.

The Compassion Experience is offering an interactive tour of life in the developing world May 12-15 at Arundel Christian Church in Glen Burnei. The free event follows the true stories of children living in countries like the Philippines, Kenya, Uganda and the Dominican Republic. Children growing up in these environments are extremely vulnerable, and the stories contain realities they face every day — living on less than $1.50.

In over 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors can step inside homes, markets and schools. Each child’s story starts in poverty but ends in hope. The experience can help parents bring children into a larger conversation about helping others and showing compassion to the vulnerable in other parts of the world.

Designed to be generally appropriate for all ages, there will be either two or three different story options which take approximately 15 minutes each. Those who register will be offered the priority entry line upon arrival.

The event will run Friday, noon-7:40 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6:40 p.m.; Sunday, 10:40 a.m. to 6:20 p.m.; and Monday 10 a.m. to 5:40 p.m. For details and to register visit The Compassion Experience website, https://cts.compassion.com/events/760
