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 has airlifted 47 tons of vital water supply and hygiene materials to Somalia's capital Mogadishu, as we scale up our humanitarian response to the East Africa food crisis.
Supplies included water tanks and pipes to set up water points across the capital city as well as tons of soap bars and 12,000 jerry cans so people can carry and store water. There is sufficient aid to reach over 120,000 people.
Across Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia, Oxfam has reached more than 1.3 million people with humanitarian aid, and we are aiming to reach 3 million people through a $99 million program.
