Peru Water and Relief Fund

$3,630 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 49 people in 14 months
This past week(3/13/17) rains began falling in Trujillo, Peru causing flash flooding and massive mud slides.  Trujillo is an under developed community and most homes are built out of adobe(mud bricks).  When it rains they melt back into mud.  The rains are causing entire cities to melt away. We are an established non profit with offices in Bothell and Trujillo Peru.  We will be working closely with our Peru team and sending money has they need for water storage containers, food an other much needed items for the victims of the mudslides.  Because we are based in both countries we are able to easily transfer funds to Peru.   Helping Hands Ministries International has the only well with clean, parasite free water.  Now more than ever, this is needed,  Water and power has been off for a week now, making it easy to want to drink the standing water. We are going to use the resource we already have during this time of crisis.  We need your help to fund it.  Each container is only $10.00.  If  500 people give just $250.00 we will easily meet our goal.  Please prayerfully consider giving.  The need to raise this money within the next week.  They have been without water for 5 days already.

We are a 501(c)3 and you will recieve a tax reciept for your donation.

I just spend the past week in Trujillo and the surrounding areas. It was even worse than I thought. Village and village was completely decimated. There were days when we would finally get into areas were, still after 4 weeks, cut off. Mother's and children pleading for help. Some had no had any clean water or food in over 4 weeks. They were sick, and the malnourishment was evident. The thing that became the most evident to us; this will take a long time and money to help everyone. We were able to meet with the Defense Secretary, Peru's governor, and the Ministry of Health. We were able to put together a strong plan for making sure that everyone is taken care of in the long term. We are part of the team taking the lead in helping everyone. We will provide water and medications. This will equal about $10.00 person. We are working to secure $100,000. To date we have raised $25,000. We need your help to continue to provide clean water and medications. I will share pictures of Dayana. She was dragged in the mud and in the hospital with a life threatening infection. We were able to purchase medications for her, in time. Her mother was so grateful. Please continue to help by giving or spreading the word. You can go to www.helpinghandsmi.org to see more pictures and learn more about our efforts with the thousands who have been displaced.

Thank you for your faithful support. We will be leaving tomorrow afternoon. If all goes as planned we will be in Trujillo by Thursday afternoon. We were blessed today by our friends Rose and Jerry Tom who generously helped us secure close to 1,000 bottles of antibiotic ointment and antibiotic eye drops. The need for them is urgent and we can't wait to get there. We will be doing live FB feeds and sharing the stories of those you have so generously helped.

Please keep the donations coming and spread the word. The rains are still falling and thousands are still without water. We helped a family today. The mom was nursing, but she was dehydrated and was no longer able to produce milk and the baby would not have survived much longer. They now have water and formula. This is because of you, Thank you.
