Aid Flows in for Flood Victims
About two million Colombians have been driven from their homes by tremendous floods, primarily along the Caribbean coast. Among those who've brought help are Spain, the United States, Israel, the Red Cross, the United Nations, the sometimes-hostile Ecuadorean Pres. Rafael Correa and private charities including Shelter Box, which has been distributing tents, stoves, cooking equipment, tools, blanket, water filtration kits and other supplies.
Shelter Box and the Red Cross accept donations through their websites.
