International appeal:

In the U.S.:

In Peru: you can deposit money into the following bank accounts:

  • Banco de Crédito: 193-19999998-0-15 (in Soles) and 193-19999999-1-16 (dollars or other foreign currency).
  • The Peruvian Congress also established this one: Banco de Crédito Nº 193-1622366-0-34 (soles).
  • BBVA Banco Continental: 0011-0444-4444444444 (soles), 0011-0444-4444444446 (dollars), 0011-0444-4444444447 (euros).
  • Scotiabank: 0005074657 (soles), 0003022500 (dollars).
  • Interbank: 200-0000001119 (soles), 200-0000001118 (dollars).
  • There are, of course, a huge amount of things being done within Peru (blood drives, food drives, clothing drives, etc), but I figure, if you’re local enough to participate in those, you probably know about them already. Stuff’s being gathered at the National Stadium in Lima.

In Spain:

  • Bank deposits taken at La Caixa (Barcelona): 2100-0479-21-0200048852. For info, you can email centroperuanobcn@gmail.com or call 93 265 07 20, 678 66 89 34 or 608 59 3656

In Mexico:

  • BBVA Banco Continental opened the account APOYAME-3(042769263-3) / Fundación BBVA Bancomer a.c.

In Colombia:

  • BBVA Banco Continental opened this account: Cuenta de ahorros No. 073 213 969 / BBVA Colombia.

In Canada:

  • You can deposit into the Peruvian General Consulate’s account in Toronto, Sismo Perú 2007 Account, # 06702 113 – 4329, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC). Edit: received this from a person at the RBC: Raph – your reference to Peru Earthquake donations in Canada is inaccurate! Donations can ONLY currently be made at 1 branch in Toronto only – the Yonge and Bloor branch of RBC. It is NOT possible to donate at RBC branches across Canada. However, Canadians can donate to Red Cross or World Vision for earthquake relief.

For info on victims:

  • Within Peru there is a toll free line: 0-800-10828
  • For outside the country, use (511) 315-6600, ext. 2788
  • The Red Cross says, “Inquiries concerning U.S. citizens living or traveling in Peru are referred to the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Citizens Services, at 1-888-407-4747 or 202 647-5225.”
  • In Spain, the city of Madrid has activated a free telephone line to call Peru, details here.

Latest news:

  • Aftershocks are still being felt, latest was 5.5
  • 17,000 homes destroyed
  • 85,000 people affected
  • Death toll is still fluctuating a lot, but is likely over 500.

Edit: from the other comment thread:

If you are like me, you may be wondering if there is anything we can do to help. Well, thanks to Saint Google, I found a few links that may interest you.

SAVE THE CHILDREN ( http://www.savethechildren.org)
========================================
You may have seen the guys from Save the Children before (they like to bug you for subscriptions and donations when you are the busiest). Anyways, it turns out that they have created a relief fund for the quake disaster in Peru. Follow this link to help:
https://secure.ga4.org/01/peru_earthquake?qp_source=gg%5fe%5fdp&WT.srch=1&WT.mc_id=x%5fgg%5femergencyearthquakeperu%5ftxt%5f

OXFAM AMERICA (http://www.oxfamamerica.org/ )
=====================================
Ok, these guys are not seen on the streets asking for donations but they are pretty big too. I think they are kinda rivals with Save the Children. Here is the link:
https://donate.oxfamamerica.org/02/peru_earthquake

REDCROSS (http://www.redcross.org/)
=============================
Everybody knows them, right?
There is no direct fund for Peru, but they have an International response fund here: https://american.redcross.org/site/Donation2?idb=1030622738&df_id=1094&1094.donation=form1

CARE (http://care.org)
=================
Similar to the redcross link…this is also a generic page for donation (tho the title of the page says “Peru Earthquake Donations”
https://my.care.org/05/peruquake/?qp_source=170760460000

Pick anyone you like, or if you like something else go for it. The important thing here is that right now people in Ica need our help. So …let’s help :)

Oh, and feel free to forward this email to anyone you think will be interested too.

Best regards,

Giuseppe Robbiano
