On-the-ground relief efforts for Ecuador's earthquakes
Organized by: Pamela James Chavez
Arrived in Ecuador, created 'care' packages
April 30, 2016
A group of Ecuadoreans living in the Los Angeles area are collecting donations for family, friends, and fellow citizens affected by the recent large earthquakes (7.8 on Saturday 4/16 and 6.0 on Thursday 4/21 plus aftershocks). Over 500 are dead with many more still missing. Many families are without a home, food, water, clothing, and other basics.
All donated funds will be used to purchase water and other basics for those affected by the earthquakes. A small portion will be used to cover the basic travel expenses for a couple people to travel from LA to Ecuador to volunteer and distribute donated supplies. Know that your donation will go directly to the people who need it.
We will provide updates and pictures regularly so you can see exactly how your donation is changing lives.
Whether you donate $5 or $500, Ecuador thanks you for your support!
