On April 16, 2016 at 6:58 p.m. local time, a 7.8 earthquake struck the coast of Ecuador. Over 600 people lost their lives and 16,000 sustained injuries. In the aftermath, thousands of displaced survivors were moved to temporary shelters.


Along with our charity partners at Music for Relief, a plan was put into place to respond immediately and help those on the ground in Ecuador with basic supplies.
