Violence has continued between tribes near the city of Wamena on the province of Papua, Indonesia, since August 12, 2013.

The project coordinator and partnership facilitator for Gunung Susu Student Center (ID-412) have decided to temporarily suspend program activities until August 19. Program activities continue for Yosua Student Center (ID-408); however, some children are not attending for safety reasons. Currently, no children from ID-408 and ID-412 have been affected.

Please pray that this situation will be quickly and peacefully resolved. Please pray for the protection of our children in this area.

Compassion East Indonesia will keep us updated as more information is available.
