On Saturday April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador killing hundreds of people, leaving thousands wounded and causing severe damage to infrastructure. Access to safe drinking water and storage, as well as shelter is urgently needed. With your help we can reach the most vulnerable populations with vital assistance.
Oxfam is working in earthquake-affected areas of Haiti to provide clean water and sanitation as a means to prevent serious outbreaks of disease.
- Oxfam is providing 79 million gallons of clean water to earthquake survivors each month.
- We've built 2,500 latrines and 1,032 bathing stalls, which the camp residents and local people maintain.
- We've distributed soap, toothbrushes and sanitary pads, and towels to 120,000 people living in temporary camps.
Oxfam is extending these services to hundreds of thousands more at risk of cholera.
