The Anglican Church in Peru has established the ‘Help us to help Others’ commission,’ to mobilise financial support for the most vulnerable and neglected communities amid ongoing floods and mudslides. During the first months of 2017 the “Niño” phenomenon has brought heavy rains to the Andean regions of Peru. More than 100 people have been killed and an estimated 118,000 have been seriously affected. Over 28,000 homes are either severely affected or uninhabitable and much of the country’s infrastructure is damaged.
