Oxfam responding to major earthquake in Ecuador

Oxfam responding to major earthquake in Ecuador

April 17, 2016

Oxfam is responding to a major earthquake off the coast of Ecuador. We will shortly be sending teams to the area to assess the extent of damage and how Oxfam can best assist the Government response. This was a very strong earthquake that has already claimed dozens of lives. With strong aftershocks still going on and initial reports of severe damage to buildings and infrastructure, there is not a moment to waste.

Please give what you can to help to reach the people affected by this emergency. Your donation could save lives.

People can donate to Oxfam's response online at: //
