CNH Tours supports earthquake relief
We were contacted by the Ecuadorian embassy yesterday, informing us that a special earthquake relief account had been opened, and asking us to spread the news. The damage has been severe and extensive in the northwest part of the country (Quito, Guayaquil and the Galapagos have been spared). While Ecuador has benefited very much from the high oil prices in the past years, the current low price has put the squeeze on government budgets under normal circumstances. The urgent need for cash following the earthquake has made things doubly difficult.
Today, we contributed $1,000 to the fund, and we challenge other Galapagos tour operators to do the same. We contacted the International Galapagos Tour Operators' Association, and suggested they contact their members.
We also encourage our guests to do the same. Ecuador is a small country, but one that has been trying hard to improve the standard of living for its people. It deserves our support.
