On Saturday April 16, a devastating earthquake killed over 570 people on Ecuador’s coast. On April 21, another powerful earthquake (6.0 on the Richter scale) struck the devastated region again.

People need help to rebuild their lives. Here is a great list of organizations that are helping on the ground compiled after the first earthquake.

In Toronto, Lucy Guerrero Escalante has worked with a bunch of co-sponsors and organized a fundraiser for Ecuador at Epic Lounge on April 29. Do come out for a night of music to raise support.  

If you are aware of events to support people impacted by these earthquakes in other communities in Canada, let me know by sending me an email at [email protected].
