Peru needs your Help!

As you may know, Peru's actual weather forecast indicates showers for days which have been causing flooding in several rural and urban areas. Mudslides "huaycos" have affected several towns and cities mainly affecting poor areas. Towns within the north and central coast of Peru are the most affected, more than 62,642 lives have been affected by this natural disaster. NGO's Meraki Peru with expertise in disaster relief are constantly sending volunteers to provide humanitarian relief and support with donations, health workers and public health impact analysts. Highways are flooded and closed due to impact, several towns have become isolated which is why the logistics are complicated. We pledge for your support so we can get to the most affected places and acquire the adequate gear and provisions.

Thank you!

Dear All,

This is Dr Laura Luque, acting Medical Director for Meraki Peru NGO. We are currently delayed answering emails and Facebook inboxes.

We really appreciate your concern and understand any trust issues that may have risen from the campaign. Just to clarify what we do; we have been working for more than a year fundraising, helping other NGOs, coordinating medical campaigns and attending several emergency issues. I am attaching, through one of our updates, the copy of our Tax ID, Legal Name and registered NGO so people understand that this is a trustable site.

Our new website is currently being created, we hope to launch on the next 1-2 weeks. Unfortunately due that, we only have our facebook fan page and not an specific "profile", gofundme neither allowed Meraki to create the campaign under their legal name, reason why we had to do it through one of our Director's personal accounts. As we have nothing to hide, I accepted to go forward with my own profile.

If you have any doubts please feel free to contact us and we will be more than happy to clarify your doubts and guide you through any process. We invite you to visit our Facebook Fan Page through the following link https://www.facebook.com/ongmerakiperu/ in order to share our experiences and advances!

Please be patient as our team is working prioritizing the most affected.

Many thanks to all for your support!

Best regards,

Laura Luque 
Medical Director - Meraki Peru NGO
