The First Lady of Peru, Nadine Heredia has thanked ShelterBox for supporting the Peruvian people at one of their greatest times of need, following extensive floods and widespread landslides across the country. 

Mrs Heredia arranged for a Peruvian Air Force cargo plane to transport ShelterBox aid from Lima to Iquitos in the north. A ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) is currently working in this area to assist those who have lost their homes in the floods caused by the Amazon River overflowing. She met with the team in the flood-hit town of Indiana.

SRT volunteers Chris Donald (UK) and Derek Locke (US) have been working with local Rotarians and locals hired by the Mayor of Indiana to erect tents and demonstrate box contents to aid recipients.
