Oxfam America is seeking donations to help victims of Wednesday’s earthquake in Peru. The magnitude 8.0 quake killed over 500 people, leaving more than 1000 wounded and thousands of people homeless. An estimated 80% of the houses were destroyed in Pisco, a city about 160 miles southeast of Peru’s capital, Lima.
Oxfam’s work around the world is supported by celebrities such as Beyoncé Knowles, Justin Timberlake and Scarlett Johansson. The charity is urgently seeking to help those living in desperate need. To make a donation, go to oxfamamerica.org
