This morning, Robert, one of our volunteers on the ground, sent us this video. It’s 2 minutes and 17 seconds of his walk from the front of the supermarket to the end of the line where he needed to go to wait to enter the store. (We sped up the video to 11 seconds so you can watch it and get the gist!)
This video shows some of the reality of what they are facing there when it comes to food. One trip to the supermarket easily takes 5-6 hours. There is no Instacart or curbside pick-up for groceries in Lima.
Thanks to your generosity the people are eating. With two more weeks of the quarantine and the increasing challenges they are facing, we want to send enough money so that they can buy larger quantities of food and not have to spend as much time standing in those long lines exposed to all the elements of life in Lima during COVID-19.
We can do more good
We want to raise $20,000 in the next two weeks. We have another generous donor who has agreed to match all donations! So $20,000 will become $40,000 — and that will help a ton. If you can donate again, please do. If you can’t, please pass on our story to your friends who can donate.
Thank you for being with us. We are with you too. Do let us know if you need someone to talk to, we want to be here for you just as you have been there for our friends in Peru.
