VIÑA DEL MAR WILDFIRES APPEAL
Let us transform adversity into solidarity.
Last weekend the Valparaíso region of Chile was hit by devastating wildfires which represent the country´s worst natural disaster since the earthquake in 2010. According to preliminary figures, the fires have left a death toll of 122 persons with many still missing, and resulted in thousands being displaced from their destroyed or damaged homes.
We appeal to your generosity to make a donation to our appeal, with proceeds going to the 11th Fire Company Valparaíso (Undécima Compañía de Bomberos Valparaíso), founded by British immigrants in 1901. Like all firefighters in Chile, the volunteers of the 11th work on an absolutely ad honorem basis.
