A massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake struck near Chile’s second-largest city , Concepcion on Feb 27, 2010, and has caused extensive damage. The capital Santiago, about 200 miles north of the epicenter was also badly hit.
“Any disaster increases the vulnerability of children. And we know from experience that an earthquake of this enormity – with widespread destruction of homes, schools, infrastructure and piece of mind – will put thousands of children at risk.”
Charles MacCormack of ‘Save The Children’
