Ecuador Earthquake

On April 17th, there was a 7.8 earthquake in Ecuador. Oxfam is on the ground assessing the situation and developing a response.

Oxfam is responding to a major earthquake off the coast of Ecuador that has already claimed hundreds of lives. Initial reports suggest that damage to buildings and infrastructure is severe.

We are currently sending teams to the area to assess the extent of damage and how Oxfam can best assist the Government response.

Some crises can't be prevented, or imagined, in advance. But as soon as they strike – when conflict breaks out, when an earthquake hits – Oxfam and our partners on the ground need to be ready to respond. Lives depend on it.

Your gift to Oxfam's Emergency Response Fund will go directly toward our emergency work, present and future.

As the situation progresses, we will be updating this page accordingly.

Add your support now so that when crises erupt, Oxfam is ready to spring into action. Make your tax-deductible gift to the Emergency Response Fund today.
