Compassion Honduras has informed us that CDI Casa De Misericordia (HO-344) closed for one week beginning August 15 due to violence near this child-development center.
This center is located in the Colonia Rivera Hernandez neighborhood in the city of San Pedro Sula. This area has experienced an increased incidence of gang violence and crime. The leadership at the partner church decided to suspend all activities for one week for the safety of the Compassion-assisted families and staff members.
Please pray that the Lord will protect our Compassion-assisted families and staff workers from violence.
Compassion Honduras will keep us updated as more information is available.
