Five years ago, a powerful earthquake hit southern Peru, reducing much of the city of Pisco to rubble and killing hundreds of people there. 

About 90,000 families were affected or rendered homeless by the disaster.

But until now many of those victims are still living in makeshift homes, losing hope that the government will help them return to a normal life. Some of them blame corruption for the lack of aid.
