On Saturday, April 16th the Pacific Coast of Ecuador was struck by an earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter Scale, resulting in severe damages to cities and towns in Manabí.
La Poderosa Media Project has carried out community film projects with the youth of the province for almost a decade, during which time, in addition to working together, we have forged ties that exceed friendship and collegiality. We have become family.
We are part of this community and we are deeply saddened by the destruction of infrastructure and homes, but above all, by the loss of human life.
We want to help our community, and to that end, we will host a fundraising party at La oficina on Saturday, December 10th at 7pm.
Los pescados, a rock band from Portoviejo, will play at the event. We will also have artisanal beer, and other surprises.
