South America is a continent struck by several earthquakes each year. Some of them have severe consequences for the people.
In 2007, there was a devastating earthquake in Peru. Lesley Myburgh, one of the initiators for our new idea, the NGO Taxi, organised emergency help for the people there in next to no time. She did not hesitate one minute to load a truck full of food and medication to supply to the earthquake victims.
Only through donations it was possible to quickly get all things together and drive emergency goods to the earthquake victims.
After unloading the emergency goods, food packages have been prepaired to be handed out to those in need.
