The hashtag #PrayForPeru is helping to raise awareness of the recent devastating floods in Lima and Northern Peru.
There have been over 40,000 messages of support for the country using this hashtag since it began to trend on Marc 15th. The hashtag is also connecting people with ways to help get involved in the relief efforts.
The floods in Peru have affected over 546,000 people and have resulted in 43 deaths. Additionally, the floods have destroyed vital infrastructure in the affected areas like hospitals, homes, and schools.
Those wishing to get involved can send things like medicine, bottled water, and non-perishable food to donation centers around Peru. For travelers in Peru who want to help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your donations at Calle San Agustin 249. Our team in Peru is organizing a collection of goods to help our neighbors in the north.
