Where Most Needed (El Salvador)
Surrounded by Honduras and Guatemala, El Salvador boasts the most densely populated country in Central America. Of its more than 7 million people, nearly 90% are of mixed Indian and Spanish descent. In 2001 El Salvador adopted the US Dollar as its currency along with the colon.
During the past several decades, El Salvador has faced many trials, from civil war to natural disasters. Despite this, the country has a growing economy. It is not uncommon to see lavishly developed shopping centers right next to severely impoverished neighborhoods riddled with gangs and violence. CFCI is working within these areas to empower community development through both holistic and evangelistic ministries.
