On Nov. 9, fighting between Burmese soldiers and Karen rebels erupted near the Thailand-Burma border.
Five Compassion assisted child development centers are located near the area of the fighting:
Many Burmese have fled across the border into Thailand to escape the fighting.
The centers and schools continue to run as normal.
Child development center staff have cautioned the children not to go near the border area. They have also been warned that when they hear the sound of gunshots or cannons, to hide themselves in the bunker.
Please pray for protection over our children, that God will hide them under the shadow of His wings. Pray for this violence to stop.
Compassion Thailand will keep us updated as more information is available.
Compassion International will contact you if your sponsored child has been affected.
