Heavy rains occurred near Managua, Nicaragua, on June 5, 2012, destroying a bridge located near the community where the NI-148 child development center is located.

The facilities hosting NI-148 have not been destroyed; however, the homes of 26 children in this Compassion-assisted were flooded. The families of these children lost household items, clothing and school supplies. Center staff workers have visited the affected families’ homes and provided food for each family.

Please pray for the affected families who have lost personal belongings. Please also pray for Nicaragua and the other Compassion countries in the Latin American and the Caribbean region as hurricane season continues.

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