Arequipa COVID19 Refugee Emergency

Getting Food to people in Need

03 Apr 2020
We've just started a project to support some of the most vulnerable people in this crisis in Peru. There are thousands of Venezuelan refugees who normally make a living selling on the streets. But now the streets are empty and they have no source of income.
 
We buy food in bulk. Here we bought 260 kg of potatoes.
Buying food in bulk
 
The team divides the food and creates a bag that can help support a family for a week
Packing the food
 
We deliver it to families in need along with an evangelistic tract and health info.
Getting food to families in need
 
Please pray for energy and wisdom so that the food gets to the right people. Please pray that we can show the love of Jesus at a time when we're wearing masks and can't even shake hands.
