EARTHQUAKE IN PERU - ICA NEEDS HELP

Hello to everyone who reads this blog and crafts along with me. As many of you may know by now, yesterday we lived the horror of an earthquake of 7.9, luckily in Capitol City Lima damages were minimal. The epicenter was inside the sea but near the coastal city of Ica (6 hours away from Lima by car), and other districts such as Pisco and Nazca, they are now suffering greatly, 80% of the population has lost their homes there are over 450 deaths and thousand of injured, our government is doing now as much as they can, but unfortunately we do not count with much, we do not have enough helicopters, not enough food, not enough basic supplies. It is so bad that people is crying for coffins to bury their dead, but we can’t send them what they need because the highways are closed because they are cracked or cover of rocks, again we do not own enough helicopters or people specialized in the army for this type of situations. The European community has said that they will help us giving 1 million Euros to help. I really hope that more countries could help us, and more people be aware of this disaster and raise their voices to help.

UPDATE: the number of deaths has increased because the aid is failing to apply proper treatment to be victims and because the hospitals are either swarming with injureds or where destroyed by the earthquake.

OMG, it was very awful. Im 20 and it is my first earthquake. I was on my bed and when i felt the earthquake i stood up and went outside of my home. I was with my sister and brother, they were very nervious and We saw that all were moving, the cars, the floor, the lamps, all things.
So, in my country are so sad for the people of Ica and Pisco (120 millas of Lima to south). They need our help and dont have where to live because they dont have houses now and the %70 of houses of "Pisco" are destroyed. I'm peruvian and im so so sad.
The ONG called "A roof for my country" will start to build new houses of emergency in the next week in the affected towns and they need 300 voluntary persons. I and some friend are one of them.
Each house is necesary a budget of $ 800 then we need your help and donation for to build houses, please.
