Living in Peru has it’s challenges. With the recent rainy season (which was extra long this year), there was a lot of flooding. Flooding caused many problems all over the country. From huge potholes in the roads to homes being washed away. The damage is something the country lives with on an annual basis.
The Torre Fuerte Home for Girls stood firm through all the flooding. However, the water system suffered a loss from the pumps being completely submerged, and Scott’s office was completely flooded. This is a costly repair and it was very difficult to not have any water for days. The pumps are now positioned to avoid submersion in the future, and Scott now has an office on the second floor.
