Natural Disasters – Social help done in Ecuador

From the days of its creation, Crusade for a New Humanity Foundation, led by lawyer Alvaro Noboa, has supported vulnerable groups throughout the country during their most dramatic and desperate hours when nature has sown death and destruction.

In 1983, 1998 and 1999, when people of Ecuador suffered the consequences of “El Niño,” Crusade for a New Humanity provided medical care and free medicine to the victims. The medical teams worked intensely during the critical stages of the disaster,delivering medicine, food and supplies to the worst-affected areas of the Ecuadorian coast.

After the fire of Cerro del Carmen in 1983, Crusade for a New Humanity helped with food.

After the earthquake that hit eastern Ecuador in 1987, Crusade for a New Humanity provided 3,000 food rations and supplies.

After the 1988 earthquake that struck the city of Bahia in Manabí province, Crusade for a New Humanity Crusade rapidly provided aid with free assistance for the reconstruction of damaged houses, health care, medicine, food and mattresses.

During the emergency caused by the eruptions of the Guagua Pichincha and Tungurahua volcanoes, Medical Brigades donated assistance and delivered free medicines to those affected, extending its work to the Pichincha, Tungurahua, Chimborazo and Imbabura provinces.

For the duration of the terrible floods that struck the town of Chone on April 2000, the medical brigades shifted their professional and humanitarian contingent to the city serving more than 600 people per day throughout the emergency.

The Foundation’s Medical Brigades arrived in Manabí, Los Ríos and Guayas to assist the flood victims.

Medical Brigades of Crusade for a New Humanity Foundation are currently carrying out a national service and permanent assistance medical plan, providing free medicine in slums and rural populations in the country, while remaining ready to act in case of emergency..
