World Vision assessing damages, preparing to respond to Chile earthquake

"World Vision is preparing to respond to the massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Chile, working with its regional offices to transport emergency relief supplies and getting ready to send more staff to support the relief response.

The Christian relief and development organization's first relief flight, in coordination with the Bolivian air force, is tentatively planned to depart for Chile later today — with relief supplies like tarps, blankets, plastic sheeting, and collapsible water containers for survivors. Airport closures in Chile are forcing delays in the plane's departure."
