Disaster Relief Fund for Peru

In the past three weeks, Peru experienced destructive flooding and mudslides as a result of the heavy rains. Damage is concentrated in twelve coastal areas in the northern region of the country, where thousands of homes have been destroyed or severely damaged. The Peruvian government reported more than 70 fatalities to date, with thousands more forced to evacuate. Water, food, and shelter are needed immediately for those who have been displaced or lost their homes in the flooding.

In times of such disasters, The Resource Foundation quickly mobilizes resources and reaches out to its local network to assess the situation as well as local needs and responses to determine where donors’ support can be best invested. The Resource Foundation partners with local non‐profit organizations that provide long‐term reconstruction and recovery assistance in areas afflicted by natural disasters. These organizations can quickly assess needs on the ground and develop programs that provide effective long‐term assistance so that victims can rebuild their homes, reestablish their businesses, and restore their livelihoods.
