ECUADORIAN STUDENTS IN THE UK TOGETHER WITH #FuerzaEcuador

On Saturday April 16th a powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.8 on the Richter scale shook Ecuador’s northwestern coast, with up to 535 aftershocks to date. For the country, this is the worst catastrophe it endures in the last four decades.

More than 655 people have been killed, over 5,000 have been injured and about 29,000 people made homeless. About 1500 buildings, including homes, hospitals and schools have either been destroyed or severely damaged. These figures are expected increase considerably as rescue teams make their way through the collapsed structures, with the expected death toll already in the thousands.

The images and testimonies of people affected by this disaster are heart wrenching as families have lost their homes and many loved ones.

Hundreds of Ecuadorian students in the United Kingdom, with the support of the Ecuadorian Embassy, have come together to raise funds for their country as it faces this arduous humanitarian challenge. We are asking you to join in and help contribute with our cause #FuerzaEcuador.
