South America is a continent struck by several earthquakes each year. Some of them have severe consequences for the people.
In 2007, Peru was struck by a devastating earthquake. Lesley Myburgh called out for help. She formed a team of 10 people, managed to raise some money amongst her friends, purchased necessities, handled logistics and delivered food and medication to the local people even before the government managed to roll out emergency task forces.
Only trough instant donations, a strong will, commitment and dedication to teamwork was it possible to efficiently deliver humanitarian relief items.
What the people needed most were the very basics. Food and medication. Every food package contained various sorts of smaller food packs: easy to cook, hygienic and light in weight.
Rebuilt V8- desert buggies were the perfect emergency vehicles to quickly deliver the packages, because they could literally go everywhere and overcome almost any kind of obstacle: steep hills, sand, gravel, rubble in the street and cut-off roads.
