Laura, we appreciate your concern for Adalberto and Gabriela.  Regrettably, we have not yet received word from our country office about whether any of our Child Development Center's or children were impacted by the earthquake that happened on Tuesday. The power to the city was knocked out for a period of time and would have made it difficult for our country office in El Salvador to send us communications. Because of this, it could be taking longer to get us immediate information and updates. I looked up the locations of both projects that your children attend and they live almost 3 hours away from the earthquake. This could be good news and I am praying that they were not affected. Please rest assured that if your children have been directly impacted, we will let you know.

Hi Laura! I have an update for you regarding the earthquake. Our disaster team has advised us that our church partners are on alert, but at this time, there have been no impacted beneficiaries; Praise God! We certainly appreciate prayers for our children and their families however, as they recover from any fears that were triggered by this event.
