Landslide victims need your help

An 82-year-old woman was rescued alive, after being dragged by the massive slide that occurred in Chunchi.

Her son, 50, was trapped beneath a structural pillar which broke his legs.

These are just two of the hundreds of people impacted by this landslide.

Chunci and Changchan, Ecuador were hit by a massive landslide on February 12, 2021, displacing hundreds and threatening to displace many more.

Changchan, a small town, could disappear and Chunchi is also in danger. Many families have been evacuated from their homes. These families are currently being housed in schools and makeshift shelters. The pandemic makes this an extremely dangerous situation.

The Cuenca Soup Kitchen in partnership with Hearts of Gold ask for your help. We are collecting donations in order to send needed items including:

* masks and alcohol
* non-perishable food
* diapers
* sanitary napkins
* clothing
* bedding and more
* Please choose the donation method that is easiest for you below.
