Earthquake in Ecuador Relief support

At 18:58pm on April 16th, 2016, a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit the Coast of Ecuador, according to the reports, an average of 90-100% of cities, and small towns in this area of the country have been destroyed.


This enormous human tragedy is exacerbated by the hundreds of thousands of people who have died, thousands have been seriously injured and other thousands of persons are survivors who in most of the cases have lost their family and they have been left without shelter, food, water, or basic living essentials. While all of Ecuador and the International Aid Community have been mobilized in the relief effort, it just isn’t enough. Earthquake survivors are desperate because they are living under conditions of extreme poverty; they are being exposed to infectious diseases such as Zika virus and Dengue Fever as well as other severe illnesses; moreover, they have lost their jobs, which means that now they don’t have a way to improve their living conditions, to buy food, clothing and medicines by their own or to begin working with the reconstruction of their homes.



In order to help to the affected population from the Coast of Ecuador, we have been receiving donations of clothes, food (also, we have prepared food for the people), medicines, mattresses, tents, toothpaste, tooth brushes, toilet paper, anti mosquito lotion, plastics, diapers, underwear for kids and for women, and blankets; also, some volunteers have donated money for us to be able to buy supplies for the people affected by the earthquake.



The work of helping to the victims of the earthquake is just beginning, that’s why now our purposes are to give help to the elderly, persons with any kind of disability, as well as to single moms

  • To begin building temporary shelters made in bamboo for the people who have lost their home.

  • To help by rebuilding some of the houses that are not totally destroyed

  • To build houses for the persons who lost their house

  • Also, we want to help them by installing small stores where the people can sell local products so that they can have their own income.

  • Additionally, the victims of the earthquake are needing many things such as:

  • Mattresses

  • Tents

  • Underwear for kids and also for adults

  • Anti mosquito lotion

  • Sun screen lotion

  • Disinfectant

  • Diapers

Chicken coop uganda orphanage

As the number of deserving children grows, and activities expand, it is increasingly becoming difficult for us to maintain the proportionally increasing administrative costs of the school including, teachers’ salaries, purchase of girls’ sanitary pads, scholastic materials, printing and also balanced feeding of our children. We therefore wish to start a school poultry farm whose sell of eggs and off-layers, would immensely help to cater for administrative costs and also supplement on the purchase of the daily food of 30kgs of maize flour and 15kgs of beans to provide constant feeding of the children at school. This is in line with HFYU’s desire and determination to become an independent ongoing, viable and self-reliant organization.

The poultry would also be a source of manure (birds droppings mixed with coffee husks) to our already existing small gardens of food crops, fruits and vegetables. This will increase yields of our farm produce.


This project is intended to directly benefit our 288 school children and 18 staff members; while shall indirectly benefit over 600 community members including parents/guardians of our school children.

Funds Requested:

While the total cost of the whole project is estimated at US$4755, a sum of US$ 1675 has already been secured and committed to the procurement of materials and construction of the chicken coop as seen in the pictures.

Chicken coop uganda orphanage

Now a total sum of US$3080 is required to complete the project by catering especially for the initial feeding of the birds for the first 4 months until when they will start laying eggs (normally at 4 months).

At the laying stage, is when they will start catering for themselves re feeding through the sale of eggs.

Please see table below for further clarification


Unit cost in US$

Total cost in US$

Iron sheets

40pcs x US$8


Wire / Chicken Mesh

5pcs x $20@


Solar energy installation



Procurement of chicks

700 chicks x 1 dollar each


Initial Feeding (700 birds)

1 bag per day x 120 days (4 months) x US$13 per bag





At 4 months, the chicken shall start lay eggs. Initially about 600 birds out of 700 can start laying one egg per day = 600eggs in total (20 trays per day). Therefore, in a month, they will lay 600eggs x 30days = 18,000 eggs (600 trays).

Unfortunately, the public health care system in Honduras is one of the worst in Latin America. Fortunately in La Ceiba the recently opened Public Hospital is trying to serve the most impoverished people in the community.  Since there are very few affordable hospitals even most middle class families use the Public hospitals.  However,  the hospital is still poorly-equipped and lack of all the basic medical supplies.

BP Cuff Sphygmomanometer Eye Drops Nasal Canulas Povidone Iodine Pads
Gloves Stethoscopes First Aid Kits Elastic Bandage Antiseptic Towelettes
Suture Kits Oximeters Extrication Devise Alcohol Prep Pads Non Woven Sponges

 A new home for the teen mother and girls shelter in Xela!

In Xela, A Broader View volunteers can choose to volunteer at the shelter for teen mothers and abused girls. This is a government funded shelter where about 90-120 girls and babies can find a safe place to stay while they are in legal processes to solve their cases of often domestic violence, abuse and teen pregnancy (sometimes as a result of abuse).

The shelter is now located in a building in the historical center, locked in by other buildings. They have only two big dorm rooms for all girls, and just an outside concrete patio surrounded by concrete walls to get some fresh air.

Luckily, they have the opportunity to move to a new location at the end of the year. This is a great opportunity for the shelter, as the facilities are located on the edge of the city, in a forest with lots of green spaces, fresh air and nature.

The dorm rooms are more comfortable, as they accommodate smaller groups of girls, there is a separate building where the girls can take their primary school lessons, there are bungalows for the teen moms with their babies, and there is a lot more space for just a bit of privacy.

However, these buildings have been abandoned and need some serious renovation work. Just to mention a few projects; the sanitary has to be renewed completely, the laundry room has to be implemented, roofs need to be repaired, some windows need repair, they need two entrance gates, and the whole place needs paint and decoration. And of course all equipment and furniture needs to be moved. On the longer term, they would like to construct more bungalows, so that the teen moms can raise their babies in a “home-setting”.
