Following the severe storms in Peru this March, which left dozens of people dead, there was an acute shortage of clean drinking water throughout the country. This prompted Fraport and its local subsidiary to provide 25 water-filtering containers. They can filter approximately 30,000 liters per day, thus providing clean and safe water for up to 10,000 flood victims in Peru. LATAM provided assistance and covered the transportation costs.
