Peru is currently facing the effects of one of the most devastating natural disasters in recent history. One of deadliest downpours has brought upon raging landslides, which have destroyed thousands of homes and are resulting in a rising number of casualties. Over 500,000 individuals have been affected throughout the nation, with the Northern area of the country receiving the biggest impact, resulting in a scarcity of water.
Peruvians for Progress, Inc., a nonprofit organization based in Union County, has launched an emergency effort to help aid in this catastrophe and is currently accepting donations of cases of bottled water and canned foods.
