On April 16, 2016, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador devastating the coast region of the country, and aftershock was felt as far as the capital, Quito, 110 miles away. Homes were destroyed, and over 650 people were killed. The local police and firefighters worked relentlessly to find survivors. The earthquake put Ecuador in a state of emergency. Over 13,000 police and militia were deployed for recovery operations to serve their hurt, hungry, and now homeless, brothers and sisters. This crisis is unlike any they have seen since 1979! Your response is extremely urgent! With our immediate response they can have a thriving community again this year and we can prevent waiting years for reconstruction. This earthquake has displaced tens of thousands of families and injured over 16,000 in a single minute.
It is our duty as Christians to help our brothers and sisters in need. The people of Ecuador are still recovering from this natural disaster and need ongoing assistance to rebuild their homes, schools, and businesses, and to replace items that were lost or damaged by the quake. Your generosity is needed to help these efforts.
