          By Mario Cipresso

        • On Wednesday, August 15, 2007, a magnitude 8.0 earthquake shook the central coast of Peru taking as many as 400 lives and injuring over 1,500. The towns of Pisco, Ica and Chincha were the hardest hit with as much as seventy-percent of buildings and infrastructure suffering severe damage.

          Through Architecture for Humanity, we are encouraging everyone to participate in the rebuilding effort in any way possible. There is a need not only for monetary donations but also for contributions of architecture and engineering services.

          Architecture for Humanity is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that seeks architectural solutions to humanitarian crisis and brings design services to communities in need. All contributions are tax-deductible in accordance with IRS regulations. Donations are welcome from anywhere in the world.
