Last Saturday April 16th, 2016 the coastal region of Ecuador was struck by a massive 7.8 earthquake. There are many families affected and devastation all around. The most affected areas are in the provinces of Manabí and Esmeraldas.
The Ecuadorian government reports 350 deaths, 2,527 injured and 100,000 affected people thus far, but these numbers are expected to rise in the coming days. Right now there is an immediate need for resources primarily for rescue, food and medicine.
Our Elastix team and a group of young professionals in Ecuador has started a campaign to transport potable water to those provinces most affected by the earthquake. This is completely volunteer driven and we are putting money from our own pockets to get started. However, we need the help of the Ecuadorian and International community to make a dent on this problem.
We have enabled an account for those who want to participate and donate towards this cause.
