Devastating Earthquake hits Ecuador

By | April 18, 2016

On Saturday night an Earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale hit the coastal region of Ecuador, with Guayaquil and Manta being worst affected.  Nearly 300 people have died as a result and more than 2000 injured so far.


All those involved with Mashi are safe, Quito felt the quake but no-one was hurt from our project.

Jorge Soria is our volunteer who lives in Patate and is a fireman.  Him and his team have travelled to the coast to assist in anyway they can. He has sent this photo of scenes of the area.


We will update as and when we receive more information.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with all of those who have been affected.
