On April 16, 2016, Ecuador suffered one of the most devastating natural disasters in its history, a 7.8 earthquake that affected more than one million people according to OCHA, representing
6% of the country's population.
Cáritas Confederation was mobilized at international level and sent €2,160,000€ to Cáritas Ecuador. In the period February 16 to 21, 2018 (almost two years later), a delegation composed
of representatives from Cáritas Internationalis, Cáritas Española, on behalf of Cáritas Europe, Chile, Mexico and Argentina on behalf of Cáritas Latinoamérica, has been visiting and living with the most affected communities and with the teams of Cáritas Ecuador and the Dioceses of Manabí and Esmeraldas.
