We traveled from Quyaquil to Quito yesterday. Cities where millions of people make their home and 60% of the children live in extreme poverty. Wess Stafford, the CEO of Compassion International, was traveling with us. As a result of the horrific earthquake in Haiti he had to immediately fly back to the States.

Last evening, Fernando Pugo, the Ecuador country director of Compassion told us that the South American Compassion projects will be sending 1 million dollars to Haitian relief efforts. There are more than 45,000 Compassion sponsored children in Haiti–most of them in Port-Au-Prince. For more info and how to help, go to www.compassion.com.
