An estimated 17,000 houses were destroyed and 35,000 were damaged. According to the latest reports, six people lost their lives.
Compassion Bangladesh shares that many children in our programme have lost homes and their families have lost livelihoods. Four of our church partners have been directly impacted. We will contact you directly if your sponsored child has been affected.
Please join us in praying for all children and families who are facing great loss.
