An earthquake, magnitude 7.8 occurred in Ecuador, killing 673 people and injuring more than 16,600. This tragedy was very personal for us. We have worked with many clients from Ecuador, who still have family back home. In addition, staff members Gaby, Maria and Andrea are from Ecuador as is Iris’ husband. In order to help, we had a drive collecting numerous items for those affected.
All of the generous donations that came in were loaded on trucks driving south to Florida and then flown to the most needy areas of Ecuador.
