I am concerned about my sponsored child and her family. How do I find out if they're ok?? Her name is Sahida Erazo Panezo. They live in the coastal region of Ecuador. Who can I contact?

Chelsea, Karla, and Joy, I know how worried you have to be about your precious children. The staff Compassion has in Ecuador are working right now to assess the impact as they can, checking on individual children and their families. We do understand the need to accurately gather information on any affected beneficiaries and staff, which does take time to do. Infrastructure and road systems have become severely affected due to debris and landslides making information gathering challenging. As of this morning, we do not yet have any information on affected children. We will be notifying sponsors whose children have been affected as the information becomes available, but it could take several days or weeks even. In this time of uncertainty, please lift our staff, children and their families, first responders, and Ecuador as a whole in prayer. If you would like to help provide for disaster relief and immediate needs in Ecuador, you can do so here. The fund will help provide temporary shelter, food, medical assistance, and water to the affected families.

Thank you. I've been concerned about my little girl that lives near Jipajapa.
