Mosquito net in Colombia

Colombia battles Zika, chikungunya and dengue

In the last month, regions along the northern coast of Colombia have seen cases of the Zika virus, chikungunya and dengue, which are all carried by the same mosquito.

Please pray for the health of all the children living in the affected regions. Pray for the 1,897 sponsored children who have been affected by chikungunya and dengue. Ask for strength for Compassion Colombia and our church partners as they fumigate their facilities and distribute mosquito nets and insect repellent soaps.
