The recent Ecuador earthquake occurred on April 16 with a magnitude of 7.8. Widespread damage was caused across Manabi province, with structures hundreds of kilometers from the epicenter collapsing. At least 659 people were killed and 27,732 people injured. President Rafael Correa declared a state of emergency; 13,500 military personnel and police officers were dispatched for recovery operations. Days after the earthquake, the country experienced difficulties distributing food and
water to those in need, including the over 26 thousand survivors relocated to shelters. We are fortunate to have field partners on the ground in Ecuador currently working to assist impacted families, and seeking to send financial support to assist them in providing aid and relief. Your prayers are also coveted for those who have experienced loss as well as the many volunteers working in the relief effort.
