To date, 1,774 participants and two Child Development Centers (CDCs) have been affected. The CDCs have been able to utilize Disaster Relief Funds to assist affected participants and their families by supplying materials such as tarps, mosquito nets, soap, tents, nails, wood and blankets. Thankfully, the impacted CDCs have been able to return to normal program activities. 

Please continue to pray for families as they recover from the damage caused by the extreme weather.
