Children are at risk in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in Ecuador. The 7.8 magnitude quake has killed hundreds, flattened buildings, schools and hospitals, and separated children from their parents. Little girls and boys caught up in the chaos are extremely vulnerable.
Our teams are working around the clock to help keep children safe. Alongside the government and local authorities, we're ensuring families’ essential needs are met - such as food, shelter, electricity and hygiene. We also plan to open child-friendly spaces where children can play, learn and recover from the trauma of the earthquake.
Ten percent of your contribution will be used to help us prepare for the next emergency. Nobody knows when the next crisis will strike, but your support helps Save the Children provide assistance in the critical first hours and days of an emergency when children need us most.
