HELPING RECOVERY IN THE EARTHQUAKE ZONE
One of the places that the Ecuador Trust has been helping is the ‘Paul VI Centre ‘ in the area near the city of Portoviejo which was hit nearly 3 years ago by the devastating Ecuadorean Earthquake. This is a day-care centre for children with disabilities who come for various therapies: physiotherapy, therapy with animals (horses, dogs etc) and basic health care. The centre is very basic and needed help so the Ecuador Trust was able to donate money to build two more rooms.
Martin Chambers explains: “When I first saw this Centre, it was a matter of months after the 2016 earthquake and the setup was very basic. On the midst of great poverty and with so few resources to hand, Gustavo and his team were giving hope to around 40 disabled children each week. With the two extra classrooms, they will be able to provide help and hope to the children and their families.” Gracias to all who helped in this.
