Hurricane Matthew impacts our kids

The media have focused on Hurricane Matthew’s path of destruction through Haiti, the Bahamas and now the USA, but little has been reported about Colombia.

Colombia is not unharmed. In Guacamayal where we work, there has been extensive flooding. Thankfully our children are safe, but their family homes are drastically damaged. Schools have been closed and families already deep in poverty have lost everything; beds, clothes, appliances and food.

There is a threat of more storms approaching. Without supplies of food, dry clothes or bedding and more rain worsening the floods, the conditions could become critical.

Our team are taking underwear, clothes, blankets, toiletries, shoes, mattresses and most importantly food to the families in need. These basic items will keep families warm, dry, fed and healthy.

Join us in responding to this emergency. Families in desperate need of help will know that they are not forgotten and be given the hope and provision to recover

Stand by... almost there...
