This site has been initiated by the Peru Earthquake Aid Committee (UK 2007).
We invite similar groups and committees in other countries to join with us in developing this website.
The approach of these pages is intended to be educational.
The objective of these pages is to provide a means for Peruvians, Peruvianists, friends of Peru - wherever they happen to live in the world - to contribute, directly to the development of education (materials, study sessions, etc) relevant to themes listed below, and indirectly to a successful reconstruction of the earthquake zones
Themes: please add suggestions for topics/threads to the list on page Peru_Earthquake_2007of the wikia scratchpad (our joint- thinking tool!)
Initial themes: Human and cultural heritage of Chincha, Cañete, Pisco, Ica and affected highland zones; History of Peru focusing on major earthquakes and tsunami (sea-quakes); (ADD . . . . )
