Help the people of Peru

"A deadly 8.0-magnitude earthquake struck the coast of Peru on August 15, causing massive devastation as far as 100 miles away. Powerful aftershocks, registering as high as 6.0, are expected to continue, putting people at even greater risk.

"Thousands of residents are now displaced and in need of basic lifesaving supplies. Catholic Relief Services staff in Peru are rushing to assist survivors of the country's worst earthquake in more than 30 years. Medical equipment, food, shelter, and other essential materials will be critical in the immediate aftermath of the quake.

"Please help CRS help the earthquake victims in Peru with a generous donation."
