(ANS - Lima) - The National Information System for Prevention and Attention to Disasters (SINPAD) in Peru reported that to date there are 75 dead and 20 missing due to bad weather since the beginning of the rainy season. These are joined by over 103 813 people who have suffered loss, 665 313  people affected by the phenomena and 263 wounded. They report 10,538 homes flooded, 12 378 homes uninhabitable and 145 421  affected to a lesser extent.  In recent days the rains have eased and the extent of the disaster can be seen: houses destroyed or flooded, trucks and cars stuck in the mud, roads ruined, but most of all: fear, desolation and despair for so many people.

(ANS - San Pedro Carchá) - "Talita Kumi", which in Aramaic means "Little girl, I say to you, arise!", is a foundation established for the promotion and training of women of the Q'eqchi ethnic group. For a long time they were victims of discrimination. In San Pedro Carchá, 200 km north of the capital of the country, the energetic command addressed by Jesus to the dead girl was transformed into a reality that is now celebrating 25 years of service.

EDITORIAL

  • A rich man who helped Lazarus

    In his letter for Lent this year, Pope Francis invites us to be generous with the needy, stressing that this generosity should lead us not to give what is left over but to give of our very own. In this regard, the example set by Chuck Feeney, an 85-year-old man who donated all his possessions to charity, well represents the phrase: "He did not give the crumbs. He gave the whole bread."
