Letter from Compassion El Salvador Director Guillermo Muñoz

Dear Sponsor, Greetings from El Salvador. It is my prayer that God greatly blesses your life and family. My name is Guillermo Muñoz. God blessed me in 2004, when I became the country director of this wonderful ministry. I’m married and we have two wonderful kids. Compassion began working in El Salvador in 1977.

Dominic: Warrior of Faith

Dominic was only three years old when his mother abandoned him and his eight-month-old brother Diego, leaving them with their father and grandmother. “We didn’t understand why their mum would have done such a thing,” says Rosa Hernandez, Dominic’s grandmother. “They were aware she was missing. As a family, we all cried together.”
