AMDA Emergency Bulletin II: Chile Earthquake Emergency Relief
As of Mar. 6th, AMDA's relief team has arrived in Santiago, the capital of the quake-stricken Chile. The team consists of one doctor and one coordinator from AMDA Headquarters as well as one counselor from AMDA Bolivia.
While three main roads to the affected regions are severely damaged, frequent aftershocks in the scale of M.6 to M.7 are making things even more difficult. According to the local report, it should take approximately 20 hours by land from Santiago to the afflicted areas.
AMDA team is currently arranging its transportation and seeking cooperation and advice from the Japanese Embassy as well as local relief organizations. They are expected to leave for the affected sites as soon as necessary arrangement/preparation is made.
