MedShare -- Leaders in Humanitarian Aid Delivery and Distribution -- Taps Partners to Assist with Relief Efforts in Ecuador 

As news of the deadly Ecuadorian earthquakes ripple across the world, MedShare steps up to deliver critical medical supplies to people in the affected areas. On April 16, a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador killing over 560 people and injuring thousands more. Hundreds of people have also been reported missing. 

The national nonprofit, based in Atlanta, has already reached out to medical manufacturing partners, product donors and other stakeholders to recover and redistribute some of the essential items needed for earthquake relief efforts. MedShare will work with on-the-ground advisors in Ecuador to hand deliver donated medical supplies and equipment as infrastructure in the area has been weakened by the quakes.
