LIMA, PERU March 21, 2017: Considered the worst flooding in over 2 decades, victims in Peru urgently need your help as intense rain continues in 24 of the 25 regions, with 12 already in a state of emergency. Highways, bridges and railways are damaged causing delays in support and supplies reaching those in need. Some towns are stranded and others have no method of communication. Water treatment facilities and sewage pipe damages are impacting the water supply and causing a shortage of drinking water. Concerns are increasing over the possibility of a disease outbreak caused by mosquitos.
La Asociacion Peruana de Chefs, Cocineros y Afines (APCCA) www.apccaperu.com, member of World Association of Chefs Societies (Worldchefs) and Worldchefs Without Boarders (WCWB) are appealing to CHEFS and all humanitarians around the world to generously donate and assist the flooding victims in Peru. WCWB is collaborating with APCCA for relief efforts to provide the victims with non- perishable food, bottled water, coats, clothes for all ages and financial support to establish and operate an emergency relief production plant.
Andres Atapoma, APCCA President stated “APCCA and our partners are supporting the victims in strategic points preparing food with the basic resources that we possess. In Lima alone, there are almost 25,000 people affected by the El Nino phenomenon”. He further stated, “According to the latest report from the National Institute of Civil Defense (INDECI), more than 24,792 people are affected in the Lima province alone, and nationwide more than 1,000,000 people have been affected and injured by the recent emergencies. In addition, 25,000 homes, 39 schools and 16 hospitals have been damaged or collapsed.”
