Christian Life Movement to double aid to earthquake victims in Peru

.- The Christian Life Movement, an international Catholic association of the faithful that belongs to the Sodalite Family, will finish delivering 600 tons of aid this weekend to those affected by the August 15 earthquake in southern Peru, with the support of 500 new volunteers who will distribute the goods and offer spiritual support to those in need.

The CLM has launched a solidarity campaign which has already distributed 300 tons of donations—an amount that will be duplicated in the coming days—and has sent over 1500 volunteers to the affected region.

According to organizers of the campaign, “In response to so much suffering and pain caused by the earthquake that affected mainly the province of Ica in the south, the CLM immediately went on alert.”

The 7.9 magnitude quake left more than 500 dead, 1000 injured and 100,000 homeless.  Hours after the tragedy, the CLM sent doctors, nurses and health specialists to the region.  The movement also organized fundraising drives and volunteers to help out in the relief effort.  The CLM campaign has thus far helped more than 13,000 families.

The movements has posted video reports on YouTube in order to encourage people to help out in the relief effort: www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_1wc7-oBV0
