A team from ADRA Ecuador is currently travelling to the affected sites to conduct an initial assessment. They are also activating their national emergency management project (NEMP) with an appropriate response level, which will enable to them to respond quickly.

Local church members are also working closely with ADRA, acting as coordinators for local donations of food and clothing.

The ADRA South America regional office is evaluating the need to deploy emergency response team (ERT) members, and a wider response from ADRA’s international network may become a possibility.
