Earthquake: Tragedy and Solidarity
October 12, 2016

MedWater partnered with Hombro a Hombro to provide medical relief in the earthquake area.

THE STORY:

Lending a helping hand and trying to make life more enjoyable for everyone is a trademark quality of the Ecuadorian people. If you have ever visited you will feel the warmth immediately. This innate quality is what brings people to drop what they are doing, pack up their own personal items as donations, and head out towards the earthquake-damaged coastal area. We are a mix of people from different backgrounds, among us a doctor, wilderness first responders, directors of non-profits, a water engineer, and warm-hearted volunteers. Many trained in first-aid, all of us trained to lend a helping hand, we are arriving with medicines, food, shelter, and clean water. We go feeling nervous and apprehensive of the destruction and injuries we will find and a repressed fear in the back of our minds of possible aftershocks or other complications. But we go with the spirit of Ecuadorians. Of solidarity and standing strong in the face of adversity.

The spirit of doing what we can, from where we are, and knowing that our actions provide hope for the rebuilding of the country, hope for the survivors who have lost their home and their loved ones. We go, because we believe the saying 'hoy por ti, manana por mi' Today it's you, tomorrow it could be me. It's big, it's scary, but we're here. Join us from where you are, today, and make a difference for those who have spent three days without food and water, hoping to see a hand reach out and help them stand.
