South Korea Promises Aid Worth $300,000 to Flood-Hit Peru

SEOUL – South Korea pledged humanitarian aid worth $300,000 to Peru to help it recover from the floods that killed 91 and injured over 122,000 people.

Seoul will provide $200,000 in cash and $100,000 in the form of relief items such as waterproof tents and clothes, the country’s foreign affairs ministry said on Tuesday.

The ministry added as a responsible member of the international community, South Korea is planning to expand its humanitarian assistance to countries and people affected by natural disasters, such as those triggered by climate change.

Earlier, acting South Korean President Hwang Kyo-ahn sent a message to Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski expressing his condolences for the victims.

Heavy rainfall over the past two weeks in Peru has claimed 91 lives so far, injured 122,000 and displaced 742,000, while about 20 are still missing.

Since December, the South American country has been facing a climate emergency due to the unusual El Niño weather phenomenon, with warming of coastal waters leading to heavy rains, floods and landslides, mainly in northern and central Peru, including Lima.
