Goodbye Ecuador!

Today the last remaining EEFIT members leave Ecuador to return back to the UK. Our time here has flown by. Every day has been jam packed with site visits and discussions with locals and authorities. It has been an incredible learning experience for the whole team. We all hope that lessons that can be learnt from the devastation caused by the April 16th earthquake can help reduce the devastation of future natural disasters.

One of the main things that I’m going to miss about Ecuador is the people. Everyone that we have met has been incredibly kind, helpful and welcoming. Locals have been keen to chat about their experiences pre, during and post the April 16th earthquake. They have managed to make me laugh and cry.

We hope that you have enjoyed following our mission here in Ecuador and we hope to see you soon at the EEFIT presentation of our work in a couple of months time!
