* UNICEF: Relief effort follows earthquake that hit urban areas in Peru
* 16 Aug 2007

The powerful 8.0-magnitude earthquake has affected 85,000 people and left thousands homeless in southern Peru.

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Ivan, 11 years old: “I was watching TV in my room when suddenly the power went out, we tried to get outside, but we couldn’t, because of all the dirt. And then we threw ourselves here. Here I have my younger sister, in the corner, my aunt, my mom, everyone is desperate.”

In the city of Pisco, the epicentre of the disaster, nearly 70 per cent of homes were badly damaged or destroyed. 24 hours after the quake, rescue workers continued to pull bodies from underneath the rubble. To date, the death toll has exceeded 500. As the government rushed police, soldiers, and aid to the affected region, people desperate for food and water looted a supply truck.

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Esperanza Micma, mother: “We lost everything, we have nothing left, we have been left homeless.. up until now no one has given us water or food, we haven’t had breakfast since yesterday, not even our babies.”

To help the communities in need, a joint UN mission is on the ground, working with the Government to provide humanitarian support. UNICEF has delivered water-purification tablets, chlorine tablets, and oral rehydration salts to protect children from water-borne diseases.
