Thank you for taking the time to visit this JustGiving page.

As many of you may already know, my brother Robby was lucky enough to live through the horrific earthquake that has just impacted Chile. 

His report to us has described how the earthquake initially ripped through the community of Matanzas; destroying buildings, roads, electricity and water supplies. 

Just minutes after the earthquake struck, a tsunami completely destroyed the small coastal town.

Whilst the initial loss of life was thankfully low, the problem that the town now faces is how to rebuild their lives. The majority of the people who live here are fisherman or farmers, and they will not be able to afford to rebuild their lives without aid. 

The charity that will help us here is a small organisation that specialises in long-term revival after disaster. 

Please give generously to help us do what we can to help the people in Matanzas.

Thank You.
