United for Ecuador is a nonprofit organization, that originated after the devastating 7.8 on the Richter scale earthquake that occurred on April 16, 2016. The earthquake affected a large portion of the coastal area of Ecuador. According to reports from the Ecuadorian authorities, so far there are hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries reported. The latest report has raised the death toll to over 700 and over 12,500 injured, that’s without counting the small villages that have been unreachable. More than 7,000 bridge, highways, and buildings destroyed. At an estimated damage of $3 billion USD.
As a result of the outpouring of help by the willing Ecuadorian community in Connecticut, a board of directors was formed. The board of directors is made up by volunteers that are working towards achieving the goals set forth by our cause. The goal is to bring some relief to our brothers most affected by the earthquake in Ecuador.
Purpose and Goals:
Our non-governmental, non-profit organization United for Ecuador is working in annex with Huambenos Unidos Inc. (nonprofit organization) registered under section 501 (c) (3) which is dedicated to the aid of people in dire need. These organizations have joined forces to solidify the aid that will be directed only to the families affected by the earthquake in Ecuador.
Our three goals are:Solidarity aid in short, median, and long term.
Short Term:It will focus on the immediate need of basic necessities.
Medium term:It will focus on the area of health, medicine, and reintegration.
We are aware that the reconstruction of the areas destroyed can take months if not years. We consider this the most important goal and the greatest impact for each family that we help. The aid will focus on residential reconstruction of rural areas, the most neglected areas where help is scarce and access is minimal. The ultimate purpose is to help people once again become self-sustaining.
We are volunteers, we put in our time and effort to help with immense kindness and heart, thus demonstrating transparency and honesty which what our organization is based on. Each grain of sand donated, will help rebuild the lives of people who lost everything and establish a dignified life with their family members. Let’s help to restore their smiles and hope in their hearts.
“Rebuilding a heart, is to build kindness for future generations”
