Dear brothers and sisters, we have all been struck by the images of the earthquake that has devastated Ecuador, claiming numerous victims and causing incalculable damage.

We have all been praying that the Lord of Peace will help the survivors bear the terrible suffering of the loss of their loved ones and their homes and that those who have lost their life will be welcomed into His embrace.

It is also important to reach out to these peoples with concrete assistance and the CIOFS Presidency invites you to make this fraternal gesture through the Capuchin Friars of Ecuador who have made their money transfer accounts available for this end. Here are the coordinates:


Thank you in the name of our brothers and sisters in Ecuador.
