Earthquake in Ecuador

Education to overcome tragedy

The earthquake that struck northwest Ecuador in April 2016 took the lives of over 600 people, left 30,000 people homeless, and affected some 700 schools, impeding or hindering the access to education for thousands of schoolchildren. A total of 1,000 people have benefited from the «Ecuador Emergency» program.

We support various partner organizations that
provide aid to the hardest-hit populations

Earthquake in Mexico

Infrastructure reconstruction and aid to victims

After the earthquakes in Mexico in September 2017, which left about 400 people dead in addition to causing serious damage to infrastructure, we launched two interventions to provide support to victims of this natural disaster.

Immediate action makes it possible for
the population to better respond to the tragedy
