How to help


Please pray for local church leaders as they lead the disaster response efforts. Pray for those grieving the loss of loved ones, pray for vulnerable children and families, and pray for churches who are working to meet the needs in their communities.


Nazarene Compassionate Ministries has created a PowerPoint presentation and bulletin inserts with information specifically about the earthquake in Ecuador and ways to pray and give toward relief efforts. Click here to download these resources for your church or small group.


Churches and individuals around the world can support disaster response efforts by giving to the specific Disaster Relief Fund. Donations will be used to meet immediate needs, including water, food, and medicine, as well as long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
