Thousands of people in Ecuador have been injured in Ecuador's earthquate, waiting for help to arrive.  A mobile surgical team has arrived in Pedernales, Ecuador amidst staggering devastation and need.  Please get these people the help they need now in the form of urgently needed surgical supplies -- antibiotics, analgesics, anesthetics, IV equipment, surgical robes, etc.  

We are Taylor Brooke and Richard Signes, living in Cuenca, Ecuador,  working with Cinterandes, a charitable organization based here in Cuenca.  This mobile surgical unit brings care to remote areas of Ecuador.  Today they are in Pedernales and need your help.  All money donated will purchase medical and surgical supplies needed by this team to do their work. Please open your heart and give as you can to help this team of top-notch surgeons bring much-needed relief to people who have lost their homes and families.

People here in Cuenca may avoid administrative costs by contributing directly to the Cinterandes account at Banco del Pacífico on Roberto Crespo Toral 1-190 entre Avenida del Estadio y Miguel Cordero. Deposit to Fundación Cinterandes cuenta corriente (account number) # 1966812.

Amid all of these aftershocks, we have an update from Dr Rodas. They've traveled south from Pedernales through Jama and Canoa where they found conditions so catastrophic there were few wounded to treat. From there they moved on to Bahia where they treated some 80 patients for collapsed lungs, fractures, renal trauma, etc. Pictured below is Dr Rodas with President Rafael Correa, meeting in Bahia. After leaving supplies at the Bahia Hospital, they made their way to Rocafuerte, dropping food and water along the way.

Team Cinterandes is very grateful for your support. They want us to know that their work has just begun and they promise that they are afoot and at the ready.

Fuerza Ecuador!!!

Communication with the surgical team is extremely difficult. We have learned that their generator has failed and we are working hard to get that replaced for them. We have been assured that all of the funds raised here will be used by the Cinterandes organization specifically for quake-related efforts. Updates as available. They are SO grateful for everyone's efforts.
