Peruvian Embassy Appreciates Donations for Quake Victims
The Peruvian Embassy in San José says it is thankful for the assistance Costa Ricans have provided victims of the earthquake that devastated parts of Peru Aug. 15 and is asking for continued support as the country deals with the effects of this disaster.
The embassy has opened a bank account to which people can donate money to aid the country’s relief efforts: Scotiabank account number 10301613, according to a statement from the embassy.
Money donated will go toward the country’s work in the Ica area and the Cañete province, which were hardest hit by the earthquake. The Peruvian government has declared a state of emergency for 60 days to help victims in these areas.
A Peruvian businessman living in Costa Rica has donated a large container with some relief supplies and offered to pay to ship it to Peru.
For additional information on how to help earthquake victims, call the Peruvian Embassy in San José, at 225-1575 or 225-9145.
