There has been a serious mudslide in the town of Chosica, 30 miles to the east of Lima. The diocese of Peru is seeking to respond with its own emergency aid.
Please keep them in your prayers over the next few weeks as they seek to help and support the community. If you want to send any donations to support the diocese of Peru’s relief work there, you can send money via the diocesan office, and we will forward any donations received. (Cheques should be made payable to Worcester Diocesan Board of Finance Ltd and sent via Doug Chaplin with the purpose clearly marked.) The story is reported on the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-32061602 and via Peru This Week http://www.peruthisweek.com/news-lima-sends-help-to-chosica-after-flooding-damages-105647 more
