Advisory: Evacuation Due to Fault in Colombia

  |   Posted: August 23, 2011   |   Updated: August 23, 2011

A geological fault has recently developed in the San Francisco neighborhood of Cartagena, Colombia. The fault is a result of the flooding that has occurred in Colombia since fall 2010.

The fault has destroyed approximately 550 homes and has displaced around 2,600 families.

The families of four children from Compassion-assisted center CO-256 (Centro de Desarrollo Integral Paraiso) were forced to evacuate their homes. The houses were not damaged and the Compassion-assisted children were not harmed.

Please pray for those in the San Francisco neighborhood whose homes were damaged by the fault.

Compassion Colombia will keep us updated as more information is available. 

Compassion International will contact you if your sponsored child has been affected.
