On April 16, 2016, a powerful 8.2 earthquake struck the Ecuadorian coast. This event propelled a group of Ecuadorian professionals into action, they launched Ecuadorian Water Relief, a campaign whose objective was to provide drinking water to the region devastated by the earthquake. Through donations and financing out of their own pockets, they were able to help more than 300 families in the province of Manabi.
The current situation worldwide brought the group back, together the group is working to find a solution to the lack of available artificial respirators. One of the most critical problems caused by this emergency! Following initial discussions with a 20 person team, communication with the open-source community was established and a call to collaborate brought close to 100 participants immediately. Today we are 281!.
