Building New Horizons for a Family in Ecuador

Yet again Ecuador has been the victim of Mother Nature’s wrath, as two strong earthquakes struck near the nation’s coastline over the weekend. Though damage is suspected to be minimal and there are no reports of injuries yet, we can only begin to imagine the terror these quakes have sent echoing throughout the nation.

Still reeling from the twin earthquakes that struck back in April, which are being called “Ecuador’s worst natural disaster in decades, killing 663 people and leaving nearly 29,000 homeless,” the nation is still far from recovered and only minimally prepared for future earthquakes.

Hundreds of families are still in need of international support to rebuild their lives, and although it is easy to feel overwhelmed by these statistics and helpless when confronted with images of the devastation, the truth remains: we CAN help survivors rebuild their lives.
