PATH employees working in Peru report that all staff members and their families are safe following Wednesday's earthquake off the coast of that country. Our hearts go out to the people of the region, and our thoughts are with our staff and partners as citizens begin to deal with the aftermath of the 8.0-magnitude quake that has devastated many communities.
PATH is proud to be a partner with Direct Relief International, which is responding directly to the enormous needs of the people in the region. We encourage everyone to support Direct Relief or any of the other fine relief organizations who are working in the region to save lives and rebuild communities.
