Update #1: June 11, 2020
Tropical Storm Cristobal has moved out of El Salvador. But, the affects of the storm and the rainy season are keeping some areas at risk for heavy rains, more flooding and landslides. So far, 377 beneficiaries have been affected. The Child Development Centers (CDCs) continue to support the affected beneficiaries and their families using our Disaster Relief funds as well as Disaster Intervention funding for needed repairs.
Please continue to pray for the families still living in temporary shelters where they are more susceptible to COVID-19 and for the safety of CDC staff as they minister to the families.
