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 responding to the biggest earthquake for 200 years in Haiti. We've flown in more than 60 tons of emergency supplies and equipment, including clean water, buckets, water treatment kits, shelters and sanitation tools allowing us to help more and more people each day.
We have reached 85,000 people across seven sites and are working to expand that to 110,000. With water trucks arriving daily now, our focus now is on preventing the spread of waterborne disease. We still need your support to help Haiti rebuild over the longer-term.
