Emergency Relief for Victims of Eq. Guinea Blast

On Sunday, March 7th, 2021, multiple explosions rocked the city of Bata, leaving a trail of destruction and desolation never seen before in the country. Official figures have so far confirmed 94 deaths, 615 wounded, and countless families displaced. Hundreds of residents who lived in the area, including women, children, and the elderly are still unaccounted for. As search and rescue efforts are ongoing, it is expected that the number of casualties will rise significantly within the coming hours and days.  

We are a group of concerned EG citizens in America trying to help as much as we can from abroad. We are establishing contact with local organizations in Bata active on ground zero in order to identify the most immediate needs of those affected. The money raised will go into acquiring and delivering emergency relief to those who have lost everything.

 

We are coordinating efforts with the Embassy of Equatorial Guinea in Washington, D.C. in order to ensure that the aid collected from your generosity and solidarity gets to where it is needed as soon as possible.


For those who would like to donate in non-monetary forms, such as non-perishable food, masks, hand sanitizer, etc. Please contact the Embassy of Equatorial Guinea in Washington DC through email at [email redacted] if you are interested in contributing in-kind.
