As storms continue in Colombia, the support of the community has been fundamental. Stagnant floodwater has caused an increase in mosquitos and toads in the area. Water pumps were placed in the most affected neighborhoods to evacuate stagnant water, and mosquito nets and boards have been provided to place in the home entryways. The loss of crops and livestock has caused the loss of jobs and limited access to some foods. They are also experiencing power outages and limited internet access. The Child Development Center is educating the participants and their families on the use of mosquito nets, waste collection, garbage management and the importance of drinking water. They are also providing food and household goods, as needed, to the impacted families.

Please continue to pray for the participants and their families as they endure the remainder of the season.

Strong storms and floods have caused the loss of crops, animals and other belongings in Cotorra, Colombia. So far, 131 participants have been impacted by the floods, and the families of several participants have had to abandon their homes due to flooding. The Compassion Colombia National Office has supplied disaster relief funds for food kits and safe drinking water. The rainy season is expected to last until mid-December, so this will be an ongoing need.

Please pray for these families and that those displaced will be able to repair their homes and return to them soon.
