The Mount Sinabung volcano erupted on September 15, 2013, near the city of Medan, Indonesia.
Volcanic ash has interrupted transportation near Medan. Two centers, Trinity Student Center (IO-110) and Ora Et Labora Student Center (IO-111), are located about 12 miles from the volcano. Currently, no children have been affected. As a precaution, staff members have distributed face masks to the Compassion-assisted families as protection from the volcanic ash.
Please pray for the Lord’s protection and care of our Compassion-assisted families who live near the volcano.
Compassion Indonesia will keep us updated as more information is available.
