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.
During 2009, the lack of rain and subsequent crop failure left the central area of Chad in a critical situation of food insecurity.
Resources were already scarce, and the 2011 drought, on top of poor infrastructure, like lack of wells, means that needs are ever more pressing.
