In June 2023, heavy rains caused flooding in the Esmeraldas province. The flooding affected buildings, roads, homes, schools and crops in the area. As of date, 87 participants have been impacted. The country joined efforts as the national government, local government, non-profit organizations and private companies to address the disaster. Compassion International immediately concentrated its efforts in assisting the Child Development Center (CDC) staff members and affected participants and their families. In October, Compassion International followed up to provide the participants with household items, minor home repairs, food supplies and school supplies. Thankfully, everyone is healthy, and the impacted families have resumed daily activities.
Thank you for praying for the CDCs, community and impacted families by the flooding.
