Join Us in Helping Peru

Heavy rains and flooding have caused massive devastation across large parts of the country, killing 90 people and affecting another 863,000, including 285,000 children. The hardest-hit districts include Lima, Piura,
Lambayeque, Tumbes, Cajamarca and Ica. Access continues to be an issue, with many communities cut off by damaged roads.

The intense rains, which started in January, are linked to the El Niño coastal phenomenon, caused by unusually warm ocean temperatures between Ecuador and Peru disrupting weather patterns. Expectations are that the severe
rains will continue through April. With nearly 30,000 homes destroyed or collapsed, people’s needs are wide-ranging. Many have lost all their belongings, Intense downpours have caused deadly flooding and mudslides in Peru. Here, the Urubamba river is raging.

Clean water is in limited supply, and fears are rising of disease outbreaks, including diarrhea, dengue fever and the Zika virus.

There is also concern for the health and nutrition of vulnerable groups such as pregnant women, young mothers and children. A state of emergency is in effect in 11 departments.
