February 1, 2013
No major damage impacting CFCA sponsored friends or their families has been reported in an earthquake that shook Chile on Wednesday, Jan 30.
The 6.8-magnitude earthquake shook the town of Copiapo in north-central Chile, and caused buildings to sway as far away as Santiago, according to Reuters.com.
CFCA serves more than 4,000 sponsored friends in Chile through a project based in Valparaiso, several hundred miles south of the earthquake's epicenter.
