How Has the Earthquake in Haiti Affected Compassion International?

The international news is inundated with reports of a 7.3-magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti, with the epicenter located just 10 miles from the capital, Port-au-Prince.

The earthquake has produced many aftershocks, including two large ones over 5.0.

There is substantial and widespread damage to the country, and damaged communication lines and cell towers are making communication virtually impossible.

Please support our relief efforts by making a donation and pray for the safety of our staff, Compassion-assisted children and families and the people of Haiti. Please also pray for the government and leadership in Haiti as they respond to this disaster.

Compassion is actively updating it's blog (, Twitter account (@compassion ( and Facebook fan page ( as it receives information.

You can also connect and pray with people who sponsor children in Haiti through "Heart for Haiti (,"; an group.
