Audra, is is way too soon to know anything, but as soon as Compassion knows anything, you will. The best you can hope for, is to hear nothing. Compassion will contact you only if your child has been negatively affected. This is one time when silence truly is golden.

Hi Audra,  I just checked the Crisis Reports on the Compassion Australia site and here is a link to what they posted.  I am posting a link here, hopefully you will get the report with that link.  It does say 35 child development centers have reported being affected by it.                                    https://www.compassion.com.au/be-informed/crisis-reports

It isn't specific centers listed yet.  Thank you for bringing this up, I also sponsor in Peru.

Hi Audra! I am so glad that Denise and Garry were here to help answer your question over the weekend! Our staff in Peru have been working to provide immediate assistance to our children and families in the affected areas. They will also begin checking on each child individually and letting us know which children were affected by the flooding. Once we begin to receive that information, we will be in contact with the sponsors whose children were affected. Please continue to pray for everyone who is in this area and for our staff as they work to bring relief and hope to these families!

Oh my goodness! I was unaware of this and I also sponsor a child in Peru. Do you know how long it will take before there is a list of centers affected or until we will know anything about our child?

BasicPiper, it usually takes at least a week or longer before we start to receive the information regarding individual children. The staff's first priority is to make sure that those who are in the flooded area are safe and have the essentials they need before they start sending information to us regarding individual kids. We will keep you updated with the situation!
