CENTRAL AMERICA & THE CARIBBEAN

Latin America is the region hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Poverty and extreme poverty in the region reached levels following the pandemic that have not been seen in over a decade. Despite the major impact of the pandemic, the economic outlook for Latin America and the Caribbean is expected to quickly improve.

See below for more information on how Compassion is working in Central American and the Caribbean to minister to children and their families as they seek to recover and rebuild.
