MSF worked in Chile following the earthquake that struck the country in February 2010.

MSF provided support in Chile following an earthquake in 2010.

After an 8.8 magnitude earthquake hit Chile on 27 February 2010, MSF sent a team to the country to assess needs.

The earthquake’s impact zone covered nearly 1,000 kilometres and we focused our efforts on isolated areas in Chile’s coastal region, including the coastal area in Maule region and near the city of Concepción, where we provided medical consultations through mobile clinics and distributed sanitary kits. MSF also provided psychological support for people who were affected by the earthquake.
