Location: Chincha Earthquake Recovery

As we finish up the last of the 3,450 temporary homes being built with funds from the Japanese government, we have been invited to submit over one million dollars of proposals for additional temporary housing as well as for permanent housing.  With three large proposals in process our small staff has had its hands full in both doing the research on low cost permanent housing as well as dealing with the bureaucratic details of major proposal submissions.  Our new volunteer Wimke arrived from Holland and immediately headed off to Chincha to be part of the team there.  In addition there are plans afoot to hold a training school next month to prepare additonal people to join our staff and support the work in Chincha for the next few years.
