ActionAid is responding
ActionAid and its local partners are bringing essential supplies to those who have lost everything and are without power, water or shelter.
We’ve reached the most affected areas, bringing temporary shelter, electricity generators and solar lamps.
We are also distributing water, blankets and nappies for people in urgent need.
“This is one of the biggest earthquakes our country has suffered,” says Francisca Friti, Executive Director, YAPPIKA-ActionAid. “Women urgently need our support, especially those with babies or young children.”
“Search and rescue have been incredibly difficult. The intensity of shaking caused by the earthquakes turned the earth into liquid. Buildings sank while others were moved long distances by the powerful flows.”
Please give whatever you can to our Earthquake Emergency Appeal today, your donation will help to save more lives.
