HEAVY RAINS, FLOODING AND LANDSLIDES

This is the flooded home of two sponsored children. The wall collapsed after rain and mud entered the house.

Torrential rains have caused deadly flash floods and landslides in El Salvador. Many of our sponsored children and their families have partially or totally lost their belongings, and homes have been damaged. For Compassion church partners and project centers in affected regions, the situation is critical.

Compassion is providing immediate relief to thousands of registered children and their families by distributing food, clothing, and hygiene and household items to give help and hope in spite of loss and displacement.

If you feel led to contribute to relief efforts, you can make a donation to help these children in dire circumstances. Pray for the children and families, already in need, who are struggling even more because of these events.
