CHILDREN DYING OF COLD AND MALNUTRITION

video This short presentation of slides shows a little of the suffering of the children of Peru's Alteplano (High Plains). The cold this year has been intense. The children and elderly are particularly vulnerable because of malnutrition. Pneumonia has taken the lives of more children in the first half of this year than usually die in any one year.

The Anglican Church has a mission in Juliaca which is working with others to alleviate the suffering. Puno is one of the poorest areas of South America and the problem is vast. We are sending warm clothes from Lima and providing food for families, but our resources are few.

Thank you to "USPG-Anglicans in Mission" of London for their support.
