Since last week when I shared some campaigns to help our brothers and sisters affected by massive rains, floods and landslides in Peru, many other public and private initiatives have begun to take place. I’d probably spend all day trying to list them as they are so many, and though they all deserve recognition for their invaluable initiatives today’s post will try to keep it short. Español aquí.
Today I’d like to follow up and share information about the government’s official campaign as well as a list of private institutions you can collaborate with from Peru and abroad – I consider these the most transparent because they are banks and television channels. Together, we can become one single force.
As I had previously shared, the Peruvian Government’s official campaign for this emergency is called #UnaSolaFuerza and through this site you can keep informed about safety recommendations, collection points for donations, and actions from different government institutions.
The Red Cross and the Banco de la Nación
The organization is receiving donations through its account with the national bank organization, where they also receive monetary donations from abroad. They are also collecting food, household items and cleaning supplies in the areas indicated in Lima.
The NGO ADRA Peru and the Banco de Crédito del Perú
BCP has partnered with the NGO ADRA Peru to enable the receipt of monetary donations from through its mobile application or directly to the organization’s accounts.
The NGO is also receiving donations from abroad. Click here for more information.
The NGO CARE Peru and Interbank
CARE Peru is also receiving cash donations to their Interbank bank account, where they also take donations from abroad.
The CARE group has enabled this site for donating clean water or hygiene kits. They also receive monetary donations from Peru and abroad to their Interbank, BCP and Scotiabank accounts.
#UnaSolaFuerza and BBVA Continental bank
Through its “Unidos por el Perú” campaign, BBVA Continental Bank has also enabled its mobile banking platform and a bank account to receive donations in benefit of #UnaSolaFuerza.
The government channel supports the #UnaSolaFuerza campaign and this link shares information about more ways to support, not only from Lima but also from Piura, Chiclayo and Trujillo and Ica.
The Latina channel receives physical donations outside the channel in Jesús María.
Panamericana, together with the ADRA organization, are also receiving donations for their #PorElPerú Juntos campaign on their channel in Santa Beatriz.
The RPP radio and television group and other organizations such as the Municipality of San Isidro, have joined to help collect donations with Caritas of Peru through their “Peru da la mano” campaign. Information for Caritas here.
