Valparaiso Emergency Update

Dear All,

We are happy to report that the wildfires in Valparaiso have been contained. Though the fires never came close to the popular touristic areas and heritage sites, a great many families, over 3,000 according to estimates, lost their homes. The smoke and ash have largely subsided and though we are still recommending travelers to avoid the town this week, beginning next Monday we are including visits to Valparaíso as usual.

Chileans are proud of their solidarity and it was heart-warming to see the cover of the mayor newspapers report that there were already 20,000 young volunteers in Valparaiso bring comfort, kindness and labor to begin the reconstruction. In fact, the cover expressed that Valparaiso could take no more volunteers. Amazingly, a call to restrain our solidarity. At A&K we have already begun to help as individuals and hope to make a contribution as a company once it is time to rebuild homes.

If your have any further questions or comment, please do not hesitate to contact us.

With kind regards

Javier Echecopar
