Peru Flooding and Mudslides

Torrential rains caused floods and mudslides across Peru, leading to significant damage to homes and structures, causing more than 100,000 injuries and dozens of deaths. Your gift will provide emergency items – such as tents and food assistance – and will support long-term recovery for families affected by this disaster.

What You Support

Lutheran World Relief, in coordination with the ACT Alliance and CEDEPAS Norte, is helping those affected by the flooding and landslides by providing humanitarian assistance in three districts and seven communities. LWR is procuring and distributing tents, inflatable mattresses and mosquito nets, as well as conducting training on sanitation and hygiene and offering food assistance. We will reach more than 1,400 families identified as the most affected, giving priority to households headed by women, households with large families, and people with disabilities.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

  • Give to the Peru Flooding fund. Your gifts will support the Peru Flooding and Mudslides response until needs there are met. Gifts received after that time will be used where needs are greatest.
  • Make Quilts and Kits. Donating Quilts and Kits helps ensure we have an adequate supply to send around the world to partners who request them, as well as in response to emergencies.
  • Pray for the people affected by this crisis and the humanitarian aid staff working to reach them.
