I am blogging because I would like to generate more interest in earthquake survivors after the media has gone away and the situation is still bad. Case in point: Ica, Peru. I was there when the town was hit by an earthquake on August 15th, 2007. I was lucky enough to get out (I live in the United States) but the people who live there still need lots of help in the reconstruction process. This blog is a collaboration between me and a 12 year old nephew who still lives in Ica. He sends me information and pictures and I translate into English and post the pictures, along with his original words. I’ll be adding information about them on my blog periodically. There is a great organization: www.buildchange.org who helps areas hit by earthquakes to rebuild. Check them out. Eventually I’m hoping that they might have the resources to go to Peru.
