ShelterBox Responds to Flooding in Peru
We currently have a ShelterBox team in Peru, assessing the situation following extreme flooding.
The country has seen above average rainfall since December 2016, which has caused flooding and landslides in 24 of the country’s regions. Over 600,000 people have been affected, with families losing their homes and livelihoods.
The main affected areas are still neck-high deep in water, but our initial assessments are underway.
“Houses are full of the thick mud. Many houses built from less substantial materials have simply been destroyed.”
