Ecuador: Flash Appeal Seeks US$ 72.7 Million to Assist 350,000 People

New York (United Nations) - The Government of Ecuador and the United Nations are launching an urgent appeal to respond to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck coastal provinces of north-west Ecuador on 16 April.
The appeal requests US$72.7 million in funding to kick-start life-saving assistance, protection services and early recovery support to assist approximately 350,000 people over the next three months, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said.

The most affected areas are the provinces of Manabi, Esmeraldas, Santa Elena, Guayas, Santo Domingo and Los Ríos, for which the Government has declared a “state of emergency”. Manabi is the worst-affected province; one of its cantons – Pedernales (population 55,000) – has been declared a “disaster zone” to which access is limited.

As of 21 April, 587 people are reported dead, 155 are missing and 8,340 are injured. More than 1,125 buildings are destroyed and more than 829 are damaged, including 281 schools, the source added.

Additionally, 25,376 people are in collective shelters. Many roads, bridges and other key infrastructure were damaged resulting in logistics and communications challenges in some areas. Government and international teams are currently assessing the situation and will reach most of the affected areas within the coming days; thus, official figures on impact and damage are expected to rise.

It is estimated that approximately 720,000 people have been affected by the earthquake and require assistance, out of over 7 million people living in the six affected provinces, according to the same source.
