Heavy rains caused flooding and landslides in the Kotagala and Bathiyapura areas of Hatton, Sri Lanka, on May 13, 2013.

The families of 98 children from Sheen Child Development Center (LK-202) were affected. The homes of these families were damaged and the families lost personal belongings. Other centers in the area have been affected, but the information has not been confirmed. The center is using disaster relief funding to provide food and personal items to the distressed families.

Please pray for the families who have been impacted by the flooding. Please continue to ask the Lord’s blessing for our Compassion-assisted families in Sri Lanka.

Compassion Sri Lanka will keep us updated as more information is available.
