Hi, Theresa! Thank you so much for reaching out to us with your concern for your sponsored child. According to our records, Marie has not been directly affected by the civil unrest in Haiti. However, we are continuously receiving new reports of how our children and centers are being affected, and if we do receive news that Marie has been affected, we will contact you and let you know. As Sarah said, your prayers mean the world to these kiddos and families!
I have the same concerns for the little girl I sponsor. The emails I received from Compassion state I will be contacted directly if she is personally impacted. However, her last letter stated demonstrations have prevented her from attending school regularly. I sent a monetary gift to her family to help assist them during this time, because it was the only thing I could think to do outside of prayer. Is it possible her Compassion center has been negatively impacted and needs extra assistance as well?
