Join us in a Collective Giving Effort to Support Earthquake Survivors in Ecuador
May 19, 2016
Seattle Foundation and Seattle International Foundation invite you to join us in a collective giving effort to support earthquake survivors in Ecuador.
As you may know, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck the coast of Ecuador on April 16, leaving more than 650 people dead, 16,600 injured and many more displaced from their homes. Approximately 22,000 people are living in temporary shelters and 7,000 remain without housing. This has been Ecuador's worst natural disaster in decades, followed by hundreds of aftershocks, at least five of them including the most recent on May 18 which measured 6.0 or higher on the Richter scale.
While the situation has improved over the last month, there is still more to be done to support survivors.
Seattle International Foundation, in partnership with Seattle Foundation, created a Disaster Relief Fund for Ecuador. The Fund will support local nonprofit organizations in Ecuador that are providing relief services to survivors and helping rebuild infrastructure in affected communities.
Latino residents of King County have already mobilized support to raise over $10,000 for the Disaster Relief Fund. Together we can make a powerful impact. We hope you will consider joining this effort.
