Lima, Peru (Thursday, March 30, 2017, Gaudium Press) - The recent intense rains have caused heavy flooding in Peru, causing serious material damage in addition to the death of 90 people (see Fides 16/03/2017).

As with all natural disasters, children are the ones who suffer the main consequences. It is estimated that about 285 thousand young children have been affected.

The humanitarian needs are enormous. About 29,000 houses have collapsed, leaving at least 120,000 people homeless. Most of the affected areas have been deprived of drinking water.

Another major concern are the more than 2 million children who currently cannot go to schools because they have been closed due to the damages.
