Over the past couple of months All Hands has been hard at work trying to secure funding for rebuild programs in Ecuador. Thanks to your support, our Partnerships Associate on the ground was able to build solid relationships with various local organizations and international NGOs. Although we are unable to commit to an extension of our program in Ecuador at this time, the thousands of earthquake survivors whose lives we improved, followed by our concerted attempt to stay and rebuild, demonstrate our commitment to rebuilding hope in communities devastated by disaster. We continue to explore opportunities to return in the future as our thoughts are always with those still recovering.
As it turns out, although we were not able to secure enough funding to launch a reconstruction program in Ecuador at this time, the relationships which you made possible for our Associate to build are bearing fruit now in nearby Peru, which suffered massive losses after flooding and mud slides ravaged coastal communities over the course of this year’s long rainy season. For example, a corporation which supported our Ecuador response is now supporting our efforts in Peru. All Hands has been working in a town called Huarmey on the coast, building Temporary Learning Centers and mudding out homes. If you are interested in learning more about the situation in Peru, please visit our website, our Safe Spaces for Children Impacted by Peru Floods page, or our upcoming Back to School Peru page. We thank you for your generous donations and hope you continue to support our programs all across the world.
