Water Survival Boxes to Ecuador- April 2008

 

Previously - Floods in Ecuador - March 2008

 

 

Ecuador suffered extensive flooding following fifty days continuous rainfall. Thousands of people lost their homes and possessions.

 

We received an urgent plea for help from the Rotary Club of La Puntilla, Guayaquil, and within days sent a consignment of 50 Water-Survival Boxes. They were needed to purify water making it safe to drink and to prevent children and adults from contracting water-borne diseases.


 

Francis Dykmans de Coninck of the Rotary Club of La Puntilla and a representative of the Ecuadorian Red Cross as 50 Water-Survival Boxes are collected from customs.
