Afro-Peruvian and Indigenous Quechua Earthquake Survivors Still Desperate for Help
Two weeks after the earthquake, “second-class citizens” in Peru, the Afro-Peruvians and Indigenous Quechua, are still without the basic necessities even though tons of aid has poured into the country. I have searched for and found an organization that’s reaching out to these communities which, according to reports, were hit hardest by the quake.
MADRE, an international human rights organization is partnering with Peruvian organizations that work directly with Afro-Peruvian and Indigenous peoples. Please join me in supporting their efforts. Learn more about MADRE and make a donation today at http://www.HealingSpirit.com/journal/society/relief-peru.
What’s happening in Peru right now is of particular concern to me as I am taking a small group on a spiritual trip to Peru this October 13-26. However, the disenfranchisement of minorities and the poor is epidemic in both the US and abroad. Unfortunately, the crises of “second-class citizens” go largely unnoticed or unaddressed until they reach their most dire point. If you know someone who is working to make a difference in the world, please send them a word of encouragement today. If you are someone who’s making a difference, keep doing what you’re doing. We need you.
Please spread the word, your prayers and your generosity by forwarding this message.
