Following a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Ecuador on April 16, 2016, ReachGlobal Crisis Response evaluated the need and sprung into action.
From Crisis Response:
“Kids frequently have the most difficult time processing trauma, so our response to the Ecuadorian earthquake is making kids and their families the primary focus. We have a team in Ecuador this week equipping kids’ ministry workers and church leaders with the basics of trauma mitigation. Those workers will then be going out to reproduce this equipping in the context of child friendly spaces.
“Our initial plan is to set up 40-60 of these outreaches that will impact 20-30 families at each location. We’ve set a goal of $25,000, which would allow us to prayerfully see as many as 500 of these outreaches across the affected region.”
