They need a flood of support!


An email  call for help from Washington Gibaja Tapia and Orchids Mission in Peru “Path of the Heart

After sharing lights in the native community of Chupani, we decided to walk down the valley to Ollantaytambo starting walking around 8:00 p.m. and we faced a big rain and there wasn’t any transportation to take.
The rain was cruel and the only thing we had was plastic to cover ourselves. There weren’t any bridges left on the whole way. The little channels became rivers and the only way to cross was getting wet and putting ourselves in a dangerous situation.
When we arrived around 11 p.m. to the native community of Rumira Sondor Mayu, the school was filled with water and the homes were collapsing. The families were helping each other to be safe and we were there in action to help as much as we could.
All the roads were collapsed and we had to hike hills in order to get to the next communities, but our mission was to get to Ollantaytambo. Because my thoughts were, if those things happened here in the mountain communities, what about Ollantaytambo? What about my mother and my family?
We kept walking and finally arrived to Ollantaytambo around 5 a.m. the next morning, where everything was in a chaos situation. The little rivers took many homes in the communities surrounding. Families were in pain and looking for help and there wasn’t much that we could do at that moment.
Dear friends is there any way you could help, through your donation of any size will make a difference at this moment. I am sorry to share this sad message with you, but it is important to help.
By the way, my whole family is safe. The need is with solar lights, food and clothes. This service will be fully appreciated by the people that will receive it.
Thank you so much for your understanding and your support. Knowing that some of these communities are isolated for transportation and the only way that we can get help to them is by walking to their places.
We intend to bring food and other basic necessities to them by foot. I am sending the address where you can see that Ollantaytambo area was declared an emergency disaster zone by the federal government. Thanks for your prayers and help, Washi.
