Project HOPE's disaster relief team traveled to Ecuador following the April 16, 2016, 7.8 magnitude earthquake, to assess the situation and prepare for the delivery of medical supplies, medicines and volunteer help if needed. At this time, the government of Ecuador has not requested additional volunteers, but HOPE has shipped, by air, medical supplies requested by the government valuing $80,000. We stand by to assist if additional help is needed. Thanks for your support.
