Reports continue to come in from Peru. The situation is not good in some parts of the country. Flooding is widespread and a number of infrastructure challenges have made it very difficult for relief efforts to get supplies to the areas that need them most. However, great work continues on the part of the NGO community and the Peruvian government. There is a solid level of support coming from both private, public and faith-based sectors.

HBI's staff person is getting out and checking in with our partners and the families in the Ines Project. We will post photos and updates as they come in. For now, a great website to find information on the flooding and areas affected is Living in Peru.
