PWRDF Announces $15,000 for Ecuadorian Earthquake Relief

April 19, 2016

By Simon Chambers

PWRDF  will send an initial grant of $15,000 through the ACT Alliance for relief efforts in Ecuador after the deadly  7.8 magnitude earthquake of April 16, 2016.  The epicentre was just 170 kilometres northwest of Quito, the capital city. It was the most powerful earthquake to hit the region in 36 years.

The Latin American Council of Churches (CLIA) is an ACT member that already works in the area, and is coordinating with the Ecuadorian government and UN agencies.  Other ACT members, including the Lutheran World Federation and Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe (DKH) are joining in the response, providing food, water, shelter, medical supplies, counselling, and household items in the first days after the earthquake.
