More aid needed for children affected by earthquake

05/09/2007 - Three weeks have passed since an earthquake in Peru killed over 550 people in four large cities on the Peruvian coast. The emergency is however far from over. Thousands of families and children in the areas affected, including rural areas, are sleeping out in the open and the shortage of drinking water and food remains one of the greatest problems.
