The situation in Chile continues to be a cause for concern. Although the numbers are lower than those we have seen here in the UK, the population of Chile is also much smaller and the death rate is now in the world’s top ten. As always, the effect on the poor in society is very much greater as there is little social provision. Hospitals are overwhelmed and the welfare provision is minimal.
We have been supporting a number of churches including those looked after by Miguel and Ronny, so that they can provide food parcels and other help to those most in need. We are currently looking at ways of supporting hospitals too. If you would like to donate to this appeal, please visit our giving page and choose the method which works best for you.
