Bolivian President Evo Morales said Monday he will donate half his monthly salary, about $950, to help victims of last week's earthquake in Peru. As part of a national campaign to collect money and supplies for Bolivia's Andean neighbor, Vice President Alvaro Garcia will also donate half his paycheck, while Cabinet members and other government officials will chip in 25 percent, Morales said. "We cannot abandon our Peruvian brothers," said Morales. Last week his government sent a planeload of supplies and volunteers to Peru, where a maginitude-8 quake on Wednesday killed at least 540 people.
