Links 56 | Juntos es Mejor Campaign
In response to the situation affecting thousands of families following the 16th April 2016 earthquake, the British Ecuadorian Chamber of Commerce launched the humanitarian campaign Juntos es Mejor (Together is Better).
“…the British Ecuadorian Chamber, together with our affiliates and the British expat community, joined in solidarity with families affected by the earthquake last 16th April.” – Nicholas Armstrong
The campaign supported three post-earthquake humanitarian aid projects:
- Fundación Amor 7.8 – humanitarian aid centre to house orphaned children affected by the earthquake. It aims to provide basic assistance such as education, medical care and psychological help.
- CASATÓN: Casas para Ecuador – building more than 100 homes for families affected in Manabí.
- Banco de Alimentos – food supplies, medicine and personal hygiene kits to thousands of affected families.
We would like to thank our affiliates and friends who have made this donation possible.
