Challenge

The quake, which so far has claimed at least 570 lives and left more than 7,500 people injured, happened on Saturday evening, local time. Over 160 aftershocks have since been recorded. The Ecuadorian Government has declared a National Emergency with the provinces of Manabi, Esmeraldas, Los Rios, Santa Elena, Guayas and Santo Domingo particularly affected.

Solution

Our current plan is to target 80,000 beneficiaries in Manabi and Esmeraldas provinces, the areas most affected by the earthquake. Our focus will be on Non Food Item distribution (ie. hygiene kits, tents), child protection/child friendly spaces, psychosocial support, and economic/livelihoods recovery.

Long-Term Impact

As always, World Vision's primary concern is ensuring the needs of children and their families are met. World Vision staff are supporting local GAD (Autonomous Decentralized Government) with logistics in the delivery of food and cleaning supplies to those affected. World Vision staff will be setting up a shelter alongside government ministries in Manabi to aid all affected families.
