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.
After the devastating earthquake on 12 January 2010 made thousands of Haitians homeless, the Petionville golf course turned into one of the largest camps in Port-au-Prince.
Eleven months after the quake, Oxfam is still providing water and sanitation to the 40,000 people living in the camp.
