Chile Earthquake Response

The American Red Cross has pledged an initial $50,000 from the International Response Fund to assist communities impacted by the recent earthquake in Chile. We are prepared to take further action as local responders assess the situation.

We are working with the International Federation of Red Cross / Red Crescent to determine if and how the American Red Cross is responding.

To ask for or provide information about US citizens in Chile, contact the US State Dept at 1-888-407-4747.

The Chilean Red Cross is on Twitter. @CruzRojainforma. You can translate here:

  1. We heard from missonaries in Yumbel yesterday via cell phone..damage is huge but the worst worry for the people is food and water right now. The wife is 8 months pregnant with contractions all day yesterday..the region has not been reached at all by any assistance….what can be done? Is food and water on the way??
    Thanks, Brenda
