Peru UPDATE : El Comercio imprimirá gratis material escolar quemado en incendio

500,000 books for early primary students – many in indigenous languages and not widely printed – were destroyed in last Thursday’s warehouse fire in Lima, affecting up to 250,000 students who were to receive new books this term.  The national newspaper, El Comercio, has offered to reprint the books for free on newsprint — or at least their first chapters — so that children can have texts during the coming weeks as new books are organized. They are coordinating this with the Education Ministry. Publishers and authors who wish to donate materials to be printed are invited to contact their team directly.

El Comercio va a imprimir en papel periódico los primeros capítulos de cerca de medio millón de los libros quemados para que los escolares puedan iniciar el año escolar y cuenten con material hasta que el Estado resuelva el problema”, dice Francisco Miró Quesada Rada, director de el Diario.

Si quiere realizar donaciones puede llamar al teléfono [+51] 311-6500
