At the request of the Government of Ecuador, WFP and authorities organized truckloads with enough food to feed 8,000 people for 15 days in the worst-hit areas. Additional food assistance will be delivered to 12,000 people and more than 1,000 hospital patients also affected by the earthquake. As more information about the extent of the damage and food needs becomes available, additional assistance will be provided at Government request.
