Earthquake in Ecuador
In April 2016, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake rocked Ecuador’s coast, killing approximately 700 people and leaving homes, schools, businesses, and infrastructure in ruins. The aftermath of this earthquake left over 700,000 people in need of assistance, 35,000 homes were destroyed, leaving over 100,000 in need of shelter. Aftershocks from this earthquake could still be felt in July, leaving the coastal area vulnerable to more damage and flooding.
Thanks to your generous contributions, Embrace Relief was able to raise $5,000 for disaster relief aid. This included sending emergency supplies to those most affected.
