Colombia continues to be impacted by heavy rains, which have caused flooding throughout the country, especially on the Caribbean Coast. The rains have also caused mudslides, resulting in the loss of soil and crops. To date, 100 participants and their families as well as three Child Development Centers (CDCs) have been affected. The Compassion Colombia National Office is continuing to monitor the situation and provide essential items such as food and mattresses to the affected families.
Thank you for continuing to pray for our participants, families and staff.

The second rainy season in Colombia has affected 19 of the 32 departments in the country. Rivers are overflowing, which has caused flooding and landslides in several areas. To date, 100 participants and their families as well as three Child Development Centers (CDCs) have been affected; they have suffered damage to their homes and lost their belongings and sources of income due to the damage of crops. Travel has been difficult across the country, which is reflected in increased food prices. The CDCs are diligently working with the families to determine the impact and provide food kits. The Compassion Colombia National Office has provided disaster relief funds for home repairs and to replace mattresses, bedding, and household items.
Please pray for Colombia and those affected by these heavy rains.
