Let me translate!

The population of Carapongo, to the east of Lima, whose people were severely harmed by the flooding caused by the phenomenon called a “coastal el Niño,” has been receiving assistance from the commission of our Diocese called “Help us to Help.”

This commission has been able to direct various forms of help to these devastated people (school supplies, clothes, shoes, food, cook stoves and prefabricated houses).  In the last few days our Bishop, Jorge Luis Aguilar, accompanied by Deacon David Gonzales, went there to deliver portable homes and to pray for the families who would live in them.  

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,  I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.”  Matthew 25:35/36.
