Caritas Chile has launched a campaign in support of those affected by recent floods in the central-southern areas of the country.
A frontal system has left the area inundated with heavy rains, causing the Maule River to overflow with at least two deaths and almost 10,000 people evacuated.
With hundreds of families and communities affected by the worst rains in the last 30 years, the national campaign promoted by Caritas seeks to raise funds to respond to the needs caused by the weather emergency.
Through its Environment, Risk Management, and Emergency Program (MAGRE) and in coordination with the diocesan teams in the area, Caritas has been working from the outset to assess the damage and needs of the communities.
