Bolivian President Evo Morales toured Peru's quake-ravaged port of Pisco, meeting with Peru's leader and delivering 59 metric tons (65 tons) of water and medicine to victims. "The nations of Peru and Bolivia have always lived in solidarity," Morales said Saturday, adding Peru also helped Bolivia during the deadly floods that swept its landlocked neighbor this year. "This brotherhood of our peoples, we will never forget." Peruvian President Alan Garcia thanked Morales for his "Latin American and fraternal gesture." Morales has also said he would donate half his monthly salary, about US$950, to help the victims. His government has also sent a planeload of supplies and volunteers to Peru, where a magnitude-8 earthquake struck off the central coast on August 15, killing more than 500 people and destroying 40,000 homes.
