They wait patiently for the municipality to clear the road so they have a place to put the mud from her house. When we met her she only spoke of gratitude for her life being spared.
Not one complaint ... only gratitude.
Today we held another clinic for animals affected by the disaster, providing vaccinations and examinations. The Copiapó Municipal Veterinary Clinic facilitates the events and we help dozens of dogs in each local community.
Food is also distributed to owners that have no other access.
Through the support of our local partners we have over five tons of food but more is needed.
Working with local veterinarians, we estimate that emergency medical care will be needed for at least one more month.
That means supplies and vet personnel are in high demand.
Fortunately, we are confident that our network can support these needs - because of your support and belief in our work.
