Ecuador Earthquake Family Relief Fund
Organized by: Geraldine Lobo
My family lives in the areas hardest hit by the earthquake that took place April 20, 2016. These disasters have devastated the country and our family as well. The feeling of desperation in their voices is horrifying as well as seeing images. We were very fortunate that we did not lose any family members in this tragedy which can’t be said for many suffering families that have lost their loved ones. The earthquake as well as the continued aftershocks have destroyed buildings, supermarkets, homes and places of worship, etc. Power lines are down as well as most phone towers which make communicating with family very scarce. Some family members homes and personal property were spared but most of our family has suffered severe damage to their homes and businesses. We have received notification that some of our family has suffered complete loss of everything they own. To make matters worse, a lot of our family does not have food and especially no water at all. Access to the roads, make it extremely difficult for any assistance from organizations to provide the vital necessities which is alarming. While they survived the horrific disaster their now faced to fight to survive. Any amount you would like to donate will be greatly appreciated and will make a difference in our families lives. Thank you for all your support.
