Chone hospital receives 2,571 gallons of water

It took a group of roughly 25 volunteers over two hours to unload the IV bags, toilet paper and 2,571 one-gallon bottles of water into a storage room at the Napoleon Billa hospital in Chone, Ecuador. They received $4,000 worth of flood relief supplies to help them recover and resupply from flood waters that had risen up to four feet high. This is the worst flooding in two decades in Ecuador with 14 of the 23 provinces being negatively impacted by flood waters.
