ECUADOR, TWO MONTHS LATER


It’s been about two months since a disastrous earthquake hit Ecuador.

The emergency coordination of the Focolare Movement immediately launched a fundraising campaign, in order to meet the demands placed on the basic necessities, and has set up a working group coordinated by AMU and AFNonlus.

The solidarity of the people from all over the world, has been quick to respond and we are now able to send the first funds for food, health and psychological assistance to the Ecuadorian population. The aid will flow primarily to support families in the provinces of Manabi and Esmeraldas, mostly affected by the earthquake.

The support activities in this first phase will last six months (June to November) and during this period, in partnership with the local NGO FEPP (Fondo Ecuatoriano Populorum Progressio), we will study the possibility of reconstruction of damaged infrastructure and the continuation of local production activities.

The study of the coming of reconstruction works and rehabilitation will take place in collaboration with the international network of architecture “Arquitecturalimite”, specialized in design services in a socio-economic exclusion context.
From the coming 9th to 13th November, simultaneously with a peace school for young people, a series of architectural workshop will take place in Quito concerning its possible interventions of the post-earthquake reconstruction.
