Until March 15, life was normal for Hondurans. But that night, with the announcement of the first confirmed case of COVID-19, life as they knew it changed.
The government completely shut down schools, churches, public transportation and more than 200 Compassion child development centers. Normally, these centers are where children receive food, education, medical help and access to the gospel message. For many of these children, it’s their only promised meal.
This picture captures the moment the Honduran Disaster Response Team showed up to Ivis’ grandma's house. Her reaction says it all. Compassion staff captured the moment she received a week's worth of groceries.
One staff member said, “I’m happy that along with my team we were able to visit the children’s home not only to leave them food groceries but to pray for them. We let them know that God is in control, and we look forward to seeing the kids back in the center soon.”
