Chilean Earthquake Update

Over the weekend the massive earthquake in Chile displaced hundreds of thousands of Chileans. It also sent tsunami warnings across the Pacific Ocean. Remarkably, the tsunami warnings outside of Chile were called off with little damage.

Chile has now requested aid from the international community specifically for medical relief and setting up temporary hospitals to treat the injured. We are working with our partnering relief organizations to coordinate the in-kind product needs as the situation unfolds. To view these needs as they are made available, visit www.aidmatrix.org/Chile
