Latin Link Covid-19 update:

Like countless other organisations around the world, Latin Link is seeing first-hand the impact of coronavirus. After the majority of Latin countries experienced long, strict lockdowns throughout 2020, more and more are now experiencing a second wave of cases.

We would like to assure our supporters that we are working hard to reduce the risk for Latin Link members. We are closely following government advice, and are in regular contact with all members to make sure everyone is well supported and being given up-to-date information.

The measures being taken by each country will have a significant impact on those we are working with. Many have fewer resources to support themselves and have less access to health care than we are used to in Europe. As well as praying for them we are seeking to work out how we can best support them through this difficult period.

Our priority is to protect the health and wellbeing of all members, supporters and beneficiaries. We will continue to update our website as and when new information is available.


Step Teams 2021

It has been decided that due to the ongoing uncertainty, as well as the devastating impact of Covid-19 seen across much of Latin America, we will not be sending any teams this Spring or Summer. We are so disappointed to have taken this decision, but feel it is the right one. Our priority throughout this pandemic has always been the safety our team members, and those in the communities in which we work, and at the moment we do not feel it is appropriate to send teams.

We are exploring other options for sending short-term teams in early 2022, so please keep an eye on our website or send us an email if you’d like to be contacted when we have more information. 

Stride placements

The Stride Programme is still running, however, new placements are being set up on a case-by-case basis to ensure the safety of individuals being sent, as well as communities receiving them in Latin America.

Applications for Stride are open. Please click here for more information.

Latin Link Britain and Ireland office

Usual office opening hours apply. We are fortunate to have facilities available to allow remote working for the majority of our staff, which are now in place. The general phone line is still the best way to contact us, so please do get in touch as usual.

How can you support us?

Thank you for your prayer support; Latin Link's work depends on it. If you would like to continue praying with us for all that's going on in the world, including Latin America, please sign up to our weekly prayer email (ePrayer). We'll be sharing a brief update about one or two Latin American countries per week, and providing a few points to pray for. Click the button below to sign up:

Prayer Resources

We've also created a new video series called #GlobalSofa. This provides you with relevant prayer material, brought to you by Latin Link mission workers in Latin America and Europe. 

We encourage you to share these interviews with your church community, giving them a window into the rest of the world at this time.

Global Sofa

Give

Due to the mass uncertainty, it is expected that many charities will see a decline in financial support. We would kindly ask that you consider maintaining your regular support, or even increasing it to help members continue their invaluable work throughout Latin American and beyond. Our members are a tangible expression of God’s love in many different parts of Latin America, often in communities that have less health and social support. We want to ensure we can resource, support and enable them to do the work God has called them to.

If you would like to make a one-off donation or set up regular giving, please do so at the bottom of this page. Any contribution would be greatly welcomed and extremely valuable.


In times like these, it’s understandable that many of us feel anxious. But it’s helpful to remember that we have a God who loves us and cares for us, now and always. As Latin Link, we will be praying for all of you; that you may know God’s peace and hand of protection at this time.

"I love you, Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

Psalm 18:1-2
