  • Elim Church CLA has partnered with Compassion since 2006.
  • They began when God burdened one young man’s heart for the community. Without knowing anyone, he began preaching and establishing the church and God has continuously blessed his efforts.
  • This church has helped bring potable water and farming development to the community and seven others beyond it through partnership with NGO’s and Red Cross agencies.
  • Children’s confidence and self-esteem is grown and they are given hope to reach their dreams.
