Aid Workers Inspired by Burning Man Spirit in Peru

Carmen Mauk stands in flip-flops atop a pile of broken bricks as she surveys a city devastated by a magnitude 8.0 earthquake. “People are being bled of their resources,” the San Francisco resident said. “They’re still waiting for their lots to be cleared – they won’t get government help until then.”

Mauk is the director of Burners Without Borders, a San Francisco nonprofit organization that is helping Peruvians clear rubble so they can start rebuilding.
