On September 17, 2023, heavy rains caused flooding in North Sumatra, Indonesia. To date, 42 participants and two Child Development Centers (CDCs) have been impacted. Some homes have been damaged, but most are still safe to live in while making repairs. The classrooms and offices of the CDC received minor damage from the flood. The CDCs have utilized Disaster Relief Funds to provide affected families with cooked meals, clean water, vitamins, school uniforms, backpacks, shoes and other clothing items. They have also made plans to provide household items such as mattresses, stoves, floor mats, blankets, hygiene kits and home repair materials. The CDCs have been actively collaborating with the Compassion Indonesia National Office to provide these additional items in the near future.

Please pray for the families who have been impacted by the flooding and that they can complete their home repairs soon.
