Hi,

I see there is a bad storm going on right now in Guatemala. Is there a way to know if my correspondent child has been affected by the storm?

Hi Grace! Yes, Compassion always informs sponsors if we find out their children have been affected by natural disasters like the storm happening in Guatemala right now. So far, I do not see Damaris on the list of children who have been impacted. If that changes, we will let you know as soon as we have the information.

Sara, Recently I have received several prayer request emails about natural disasters in countries where Compassion works. How hard would it be to send out emails to sponsors with notifications of when there is a natural disaster occurring their child's country?

Hi Beth! That is a great question! We actually already do send out notification if your child is directly affected by any type of disaster.However, you will not receive notification if they were not affected unless the disaster is on a very large scale. However, if you would like to keep up to date on your own with what is happening, you can always check out all of our updates here:  https://www.compassion.com/where-we-work/crisis-updates.htm.

That's great to know, Shannon, that emails are sent out to sponsors of affected families. Thanks also for pointing me to the link.

Hi Grace. I sponsor 4 children in Guatemala. Just curious, how did you find out about the storm? I would like to check it's location. Thanks.

Thanks- I sure can't find any big storms, but then I don't usually use the internet for weather.
