Publication date:2017-04-05

According to the report from AMDA personnel (one doctor and one coordinator) who arrived in Lima on 02 April, there seemed to have been no damage caused by the flood around the airport and the central part of the city.

On the following day, AMDA Peru and its local counterpart, Socios En Salud (Partners in Health) had a briefing on further relief activities. It was decided that the joint medical team will organize mobile clinic in the following areas, namely, Carabayllo (04 April), Lurigancho (05 April), and Piura (06-09 April), the most affected city in the northwest. Depending on the result of needs assessment, the team may provide aid goods as well.

Socioa En Salud had worked with AMDA in providing medical assistance during the 2007 earthquake that struck Peru’s coastal areas.

As of 01 April 2017, Centro de Operaciones de Emergencia Nacional (COEN) said that the death toll has reached 101 and the affected population has topped 150,000.
