report CARE

Geneva, August 30, 2007 - Geneva's Council of State has voted to make 100,000 Swiss francs available to CARE International in order to provide tents, food and safe drinking water to approximately 15,000 people left homeless by the earthquake in Peru. The grant from the Geneva government comes just as authorities in Peru have launched an urgent appeal for help in finding emergency shelter. CARE has been working in Peru since 1970, and its programs currently help an estimated 500,000 people, many of them in the most impoverished sectors of society.
