Compassion Nicaragua has provided more information about the recent dengue fever outbreak there.

All affected children from Elegidos de Jesus Student Center (NI-257), Gedeones del Reino Student Center (NI-261) and Generacion de Guerreros Student Center (NI-262) have been released from the hospital and show improvement. The centers continue to provide breakfast for all of the children at the centers, food items for the affected children, and hygiene training for parents. The national health ministry has cleaned and fumigated the affected communities, provided hygiene training, and repaired wastewater systems.

Please ask the Lord to provide healing for those who are sick and to protect those who have not contracted dengue fever.

Compassion Nicaragua will keep us updated as more information is available.
