Thank you for your continued prayers over our staff and all the families that have suffered and continue to struggle as a result of last month’s 7.8 earthquake in Ecuador.
In the days following this disaster, Kids Around the World staff assisted in recovery efforts:
- Delivered 40,000 meals to the affected communities around Puerto Nuevo.
- Shared a clear gospel message and prayer at distribution points.
- Helped repair the damaged roof on the local church.
- Distributed 40 water filters to families with children.
According to our staff on the ground, safe potable water is a critical need. Our goal is acquire one hundred water filters to distribute to larger households suffering the greatest need. A gift of $25 will provide a filter to a family in need. If you would like to make a gift designated toward the purchase of one or more of these filters, you can do so here.
Thank you again for keeping this situation in the forefront of your prayers. The news coverage is gone, but the need continues to be great.
