Food for Life responds to massive floods in Argentina

On February 15, six people died in the town of Río Ceballos Cordoba, Argentina, after massive floods tore through the region from heavy storms. An estimated 20,000 people have lost their homes, as the rivers overflowed, dragging everything in their path.

For the last 8 months Food for Life volunteers have been providing hot meals throughout Cordoba from their Motorhome, so when the floods hit, the 15-person team, led by Fernando Barrera (Viṣṇurāta das) responded immediately, using a truck to deliver mattresses, blankets, shoes, clothing, coats, clean water, nonperishable foods and freshly cooked plant-based meals they cooked in their small kitchen.


In emergencies like this, food is often not enough, so the team is also providing medical supplies, including hydrogen peroxide, gauze, thermometers, bandages, syringes, and needles.


More than 60,000 people were affected by the floods. Some neighbourhoods are without electricity and still having to deal with flooded streets. Many bridges have collapsed and access throughout the area is a major challenge.

The local police, Puesto de Verificación del Automotor N’ 1. Policía de Córdoba, have been impressed with the efforts of the Food for Life team and are even collecting donations on their behalf.

The mayor of Rio Ceballos, one of the worst affected areas, said this morning, “The floods have totally destroyed everything.”
