By Trujillo, Peru Relief Team (Originally in Spanish)
On March 15, 2014, just three hours after being struck by a 6.1 magnitude temblor, northern Peru was again rattled by an earthquake of 6.3 magnitude. The coastal city of Sechura was the most affected with 50 homes being damaged. After receiving Supreme Master Ching Hai’s relief fund of US$2,500 and Her loving request to help those in need, our Association members from the city of Trujillo traveled to Sechura and delivered 421 sheets of corrugated iron for roof repair to approximately 250 disadvantaged families from March 28 to 30. Some of the remaining iron sheets were left for the local authorities to be shared with other families that needed them. The recipients were extremely happy to receive such unexpected gifts and some commented that they must have been God-sent.
