Disaster Relief Arrives in Chile
Global Operations & Development disaster relief arrived in Chile several weeks ago and after clearing customs was delivered last week to the Talcahuano/Concepcion area. This region has the highest unemployment rate in Chile due to the damage to its ports and local factories.
A crew of 15 men unloaded the container that included a variety of much needed items including beans, portable mattresses, tarp material, a new oven and bakery items. On Monday, July 5th, distribution of these materials began in the Maule and Bio Bio regions, the areas most affected by the earthquake.
This relief was delivered with the help of our partners. Thanks to all of our supporters who enable G.O. & D. to fulfill our mission of alleviating the suffering of thousands in Chile.
This shipment was a part of G.O. & D. and Giving Children Hope’s disaster relief response to the 8.8 earthquake that hit Chile on February 27, 2010. Click here for more information: http://www.gchope.org/8.8-earthquake-hits-chile.html
