M.A.D. (Make A Difference) is a small group of individuals that are dedicated to the continuation of the disaster relief response in Pisco, Peru. On August 15th 2007 a 7.9 earthquake left a devastating impact on the residents in the affected areas, leaving thens of thousands without homes, proper sanitation and jobs. Now close to a year and a half since the earthquake, the city is working hard to rebuild their homes, communities, and livelihoods. As returning volunteers we have witnessed the slow (yet steady) progression of the city being rebuilt. Our desire is to not only provide our skills and tools to the families seeking need but to encourage families to work together in supportive efforts to help each other rebuild their houses. Leaving behind a more self reliant, sustainable community that, in the future, will be less dependant on governmental aid.
