BENEFITING: Range Of Motion Project NFP
We are a international students from Japan. We have decided what we can to contribute to helping the Ecuadorian. The big earthquake occurred on April 16th 6:58pm in Ecuador. The moment magnitude was 7.8 and at least over 650 people were killed and 27,732 people injured. Government estimated that the overall cost of the damage will rise to between $2billion and $3billion. Hundreds of schools have been closed and water instructure has been damaged and shut down, as well as thousand of other buildings (home, workplace, hositals) and so on. They are still suffering from damages of the earth quake. Many earthquake were occurred in our country, Japan, too and people from all over the world have helped us.Therefore this time we would like to help people who are suffering from the earthquake in Ecuador. When the big earthquake occurred in 2011, many other countries helped Japan, which is called "Tomodachi Sakusen". So we would In like to help Ecuador as "Tomodachi". It means "friend". We are hoping many of you will become "Tomodachi". And we really want to help Ecuador with together.
