Despite the fact that two years have passed since the earthquake that struck Ecuador, requests for help continue to arrive at MGHM. In this last year of 2018, we have helped to rebuild six homes. We still have many requests from families in terrible situations. As soon as a donation arrives, it is used to alleviate their needs.
Thanks to the donations received, we are able to respond to most of the social and spiritual needs that we encounter. After reconstructing the structure of these houses, we have added other improvements such as the installation of a kitchen and bathrooms.
In several cases, the houses were so destroyed that it would have been pointless to try to rebuild. In those cases, we provided bamboo homes, collaborating with a Catholic foundation called Hogar de Cristo.
