The #Relief4Peru campaign raises $490,000

“They asked us to stay at home, but a lot of people have no savings so that was impossible. They asked us to wash our hands, but 1 in 3 poor households has access to running water… Only half of the Peruvian homes have refrigerators, forcing many families to return daily to crowded markets, a major source of contagion”, said Peruvian Hugo Ñopo to The New York Times.

Peru has been extremely vulnerable to the Covid-19 pandemic due to its socio-economic circumstances. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, 20% of Peru’s 33 million population lived below the poverty line, but it is estimated that this crisis will push an additional 8% of the population into extreme poverty. On this and other socio-economic indicators, Covid-19 is likely to wipe out the last decade of progress in Peru.

This is why, in February, as the country was about to go into a  lockdown, Help Peru started to take action and work with NGOs on the ground to provide relief to the most urgent needs. A few months later, from June 15th  to  July 28th, 2020, we started the #Relief4Peru campaign.

Help Peru has responded to the Covid-19 emergency by funding relief operations of organizations in:

  1. Healthcare: providing protection for healthcare workers & treatment for COVID-19 patients; supplying water filters
  2. Education: producing radio programs to inform about COVID-19 prevention in the Amazon, and audiobooks to be broadcasted on the radio for homeschooling
  3. Food: providing food baskets for families in Lima, the highlands and Arequipa

With the support of individual donors, companies, artists and others we managed to double our goal, raising almost half a million dollars! Thanks to all of you who donated or contributed in any way to the campaign.
