Peru has developed a new campaign to assist flood victims. Now people can send donations immediately by mobile phone through text message.
The campaign is called Telefon and was launched by President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski on March 24th.
Many of the major mobile service providers have joined the campaign, including Movistar, Entel, Claro, Bitel, Virgen Mobile, and Tuenti. Now people who use of any of these providers can send a text with the letter ´D´ to the number 1400 in order to donate S/.30 to the cause.
The money will go towards vital needs like food and medicine under the direction of the Ministry of Production.
This campaign will last until April 9th.
