We have selected 3 suffering communities to pray for them and to distribute what is raised:
1. To help "Puerto Viejo" in Manabí Province where destruction is huge. It is origin town of Fr. Roberto Beliz, SVD who serves in Archdiocese of México with Saint John Paul II & Saint Thomas More Parrish where Fundacion VidaFlorida is based. Three days after tragedy Fr. Beliz finally was able to phone his home town and told us that people there is still in shock. Donations will be used to buy food and basic daily supplies.
2. To support "Siervas del Hogar de la Madre" emergency fund. They are a religious congregation with 3 houses in Ecuador (Guayaquil, Chone and Playaprieta). According to their website, they lost 4 members with their buildings of their mission in Playaprieta. Mortal victims are: Sister Clare Crockett (33 years old, North Ireland) and 4 young novices from Ecuador: Jazmina, M Augusta, Valeria, Catalina. They were serving in very precarious conditions to families due to floods that affected the area few days before. "I have seen the sisters with their smiles of always, but is notorious that they are exhausted." said a woman of Playaprieta.

Donations will go to the most urgent need they consider.
