Helping out in Yucay and Calca

Here are some photos of Scott's trip to the sacred valley today. Along with Pastor Steve and some church members they visited the devastated villages and were shown round by the community leaders. They gave out food and spent time talking with folk about how best we can help them.

it looks like a lake, but if you look closer you can see that this is actually a flooded sports stadium!

most houses are made of adobe (straw and brick) they become soaked with the flood water and then they collapse

In Yucay the government has provided 65 tents to house each homeless family. They have some privacy and are better able to guard their property. In Calca 45 homeless families are all living together in a school building.
