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

Oxfam ran special 'cash-for-work' programs to help those whose livelihoods were washed away by last year's devastating floods get back on their feet. Such programs provide people with a much-needed income by paying them to help clean up flood-affected areas and rehabilitate facilities.
