MSF first worked in Ecuador in 1996, most recently in response to two earthquakes that hit the country in 2016.
After the first 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck, four of our teams already working in South America travelled to Ecuador and spent a month working in Manabí and Esmeralda provinces, two of the worst-affected areas, which were later declared disaster zones.
After an initial assessment, our teams focused their efforts on providing mental health support and distributing relief items.
