Shortly after the earthquake, Young Living Senior Director of Global Philanthropy Nikki Davis traveled to Ecuador and teamed up with our staff in the country to coordinate and put your donations to use to purchase food, water, and supplies. We also assembled emergency kits, which included Young Living products. All of the items were then delivered to some of the most remote areas hit by the devastating earthquake—areas where people were still waiting for aid.
Your donations have already done so much, but we can still use your help while we continue to provide supplies and resources as the country recovers and rebuilds. We’re focused on providing supplies such as:
Young Living stands united with the people of Ecuador following a powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake on April 16. We feel fortunate that all of our Young Living employees in Ecuador and the Young Living Academy students are safe and that all of our operations at the Young Living Ecuador office, Young Living Academy, Guayaquil farm, and wellness spa have not been impacted.
However, we are heartbroken by the images and stories of people in Ecuador living near the epicenter of the earthquake in the coastal Manabí Province, and our thoughts and prayers are with those who are affected. Many in the hardest hit areas have lost everything, including friends, relatives, and children.
Ecuador holds a special place in the hearts of the Young Living family. Not only is it home to one of our beautiful farms, but it’s also home to the Young Living Foundation’s flagship project, the Young Living Academy. Couple that with an office, wellness spa, other operations, and many employees and members, and Ecuador is as much a home to us as Lehi, Utah, USA. Ecuador's members, employees, and community friends are part of the Young Living family.
Donate today and stand united with Ecuador.
