What Chile needs

Fernanda Herrera, 16, and other students prepare food kits that will be distributed to the victims of the 8.8 quake in Chile. Caritas Chile needs dry and canned food, such as rice and tuna, but also shelter materials for people who have lost their homes. "What we need most now is tents", says Juan Cristobal Precht, emergency relief coordinator of Caritas Chile. "But they should be completely different to the ones, that are distributed in Haiti at the moment. There it rains with 27 degrees, here it rains with minus 4 degrees." What he is looking into is tents with thick floors, and heated ones.
