On May 26, 2017, torrential rains caused a massive flood in Sri Lanka. Many people have died, been injured and displaced by floods and mudslides. The rains have lessened and floodwaters are slowly residing, but high wind warnings remain in effect. Since the children we serve are so vulnerable and live in poorly constructed homes, floods like these can be devastating. Many of the children in our programs and several of our program centers and staff are affected. Compassion staff in Sri Lanka are working diligently to identify the families that are affected by the flood and provide necessary assistance.
