Recently, heavy rains caused the Deli River to overflow into the city of Medan.
The water level rose to nearly 6 feet high in several districts and, as a result, people were forced to evacuate their homes.
Two Compassion-assisted child development centers are located near the Deli River: IO-101 El Shaddai Student Center and IO-561 Baptis Children Ministry Student Center.
Please pray for the safety of the children, staff, and their families who may have been affected. Also, pray for the water levels to recede.
Compassion Indonesia will keep us updated as more information is available.
Compassion International will contact you if your sponsored child has been affected
