On Monday April 16, 2016 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake occurred in Ecuador and devastation occurred in many different villages. There were a total of 272 deaths and at least 2,527 injuries. There is still a lot of work to be done to help with people who continue to suffer. Penaherrera of the emergency management office told CNN, "The lack of water and communication remains a big problem."
This is where More than Sport came in to assist with the problem. Thanks to the support of our partners EMJ, Velofix, Drink Maple, and QT2 we were able to provide 450 water filters to those suffering. Through the support of our partners on the ground thousands of people now have access to the clean water they desperately need.
Although there has been so much devastation in Ecuador, there are many people that are coming together to do MORE and help in whatever way they can. There are many families that are so thankful for the help that was provided.
