On April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake and violent aftershocks occurred in Ecuador destroying roads, bridges, and power supplies to the regions surrounding the Esmeraldas province. The damage to the country’s infrastructure appears unprecedented, with over 20,000 people left without homes. A state of emergency has been declared across six provinces in Ecuador and the death toll reached 660; more than 2,500 people have been injured. I would like to apply as a Volunteer for the Ecuador Earthquake Response by All Hands Volunteers. I would like to stay there for 3 months until my tourist visa expires.
All Hands provides:
1. three simple meals on work days; 2. basic accommodation; 3. All the necessary support and logistics for you to have a positive and productive volunteer experience.
But I must cover the cost of:
1. travel to and from the project; 2. meals on my days off; 3. costs associated with any breaks.
