Peru Flooding Destroying Lives

By Adam See | Executive Director

The 2023 rainy season in Peru has been devastating.And, as always, it is the nations most vulnerable that are suffering the most.  In early March, the warming of the ocean located off the coast of Peru signaled a strong El Nino. The government declared a state of emergency as the warming of the ocean causes an increase in rainfall in the Andes. Additionally, in early March Peru experienced torrential rains due to Cyclone Yaku, the first cyclone in the Pacific in 40 years. The northern regions of Tumbes, Lambayeque, and Piura were the most damaged. The floods, river overflows and landslides have left over 300,000 people in need emergency help.  Sad;y impoverished young mothers and their children are carrying the greatest burden as food, shelter and medical care are in short supply. 

As always, in addition to the loss of life and housing, the already impoverished regions has lost critical infrastructure.   It is estimated that 174,304 households, 327 health facilities and 1,262 educational institutions are in the floods path creating massive destruction. VIDA is focusing on sending critical medical supplies and equipment to address immediate issues as well as helping to rebuild the healthcare infrastructure.  VIDA is prepping for shipments of aid as this report is being writtten.

VIDA has staged three containers ready for shipment to Peru. As always, the cost of shipment remains an enormous challenge. VIDA counts on the generous support of others, including the GlobalGiving community to make our mission possible. We ask you today to join us by contributing to the costs of shipping this life saving aid to Peru.
