The Eternal Record

Earthquake In My Country

Rate this Entry
Some of you may or may not know, but just a few days ago, a 7.8 earthquake hit the coast of Ecuador. Thankfully, my family and I are OK, and the area we live in was, for the most part, unaffected.

However, other areas, and most importantly, other cities and towns closer to the epicenter have suffered great damages, with one town in particular being not only almost completely destroyed, but lacking in food, water and other resources, and due to the damage to surrounding highways, they've been practically isolated. Many people have sent donations to help the survivors, and many have volunteered to help with the rescue efforts. Even other countries have been sending aid to the people in these towns.

Since, as an individual, there's not much I can do to help outside of donating, I can only come to you guys to, at the very least, help spread the word about this. There are several groups accepting donations internationally, as well as accounts set up specifically for international donations. Donate if you can, spread the word if possible, and honestly, thank you. Everyone here, the entire country, is grateful for any contributions.

(Donations to the Red Cross in general can help, since not only is the Ecuadorian Red Cross working on this, but we've received aid from other countries' Red Cross organizations as well)

    I don't have much money that I could donate, but if I can think of anywhere to spread the word about it, I will. Thoughts and prayers with you and the people of your country.

    I had no idea that that had happened, KAIZA. Like Prix, I can't do much but be sure to point it out to people. Thoughts, hopes and prayers for you, your family and friends, and especially those the natural disaster has left in desperate need.
