URGENT: Torrential Rains and Resulting Floods Batter Chimbote
From Trujillo in the north to Lima in the south, and all along Chimbote’s Pacific Coast, the worst flooding in decades has resulted in countless houses destroyed or unusable and numerous dead. The impact to water supplies and sanitary services is already resulting in serious health risks and a state of sanitary emergency in nearby affected communities.
Yet, those who are most vulnerable are the poorest of the poor … the ones who live in the barrios served by our home visiting teams from Maternidad de Maria. We are gearing up now to help where the need is greatest. Please join us!
