On Saturday April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador killing hundreds of people, leaving thousands wounded and causing severe damage to infrastructure.

Every three years, Oxfam Canada members join together to meet Oxfam program partners from around the world and discuss our role in the global movement for change.
Our 2010 gathering took place in Toronto and was a dynamic gathering of Oxfam members – volunteers, donors, academics, advocates and activists – and explored the themes of gender based violence, maternal health, poverty, security, climate change, and food security.
The result: a renewed vision and determination to eradicate global poverty and injustice.
