Anderson lives in the coastal community of Cantón Huisquil, home to approximately 10,300 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, tin walls and wood roofs.

The regional diet consists of maize. Common health problems in this area include malnutrition and parasites. Most adults are unemployed but some work as day laborers, fishermen, market traders, street vendors or subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $150 per month. This community needs clean water, vocational training centers and permanent employment opportunities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Refugio de David Student Center to provide Anderson with Bible teaching, leadership training, health screenings, hygiene education, indoor and outdoor games and educational assistance. The center staff will also provide meetings for the parents or guardians of Anderson.
Most Salvadorans live in the country's subtropical central region of valleys and plateaus. A hot coastal plain is in the south and the north is mountainous. Nearly all the land is farmed; coffee is grown in the mountains.

Ninety percent of El Salvador's population is of mixed Indian and Spanish descent; about 60 percent live in urban areas. Although a few Indians have retained many of their old customs and traditions, most people have adopted the Spanish language and culture. Fifty-seven percent of Salvadorans are Catholic but there is extensive activity by Protestant groups and over twenty-one percent are Protestants. Compassion works in the central, southern and western regions of the country.

El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. Spain claimed the country in 1525. Almost 300 years later, El Salvador declared its independence and, after a brief union with Mexico, joined four other Central American countries to form a federation. When this union ended in 1838, El Salvador became a republic. The country experienced a period of increasing unrest during the 1970s that culminated in a civil war in the 1980s. In 1992, a peace agreement was reached.
