SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA (Examiner.com) - World Vision is rushing emergency supplies to survivors of the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that rocked Chile overnight. We are preparing an airlift of relief supplies, which will be distributed to the most needed areas where we work in Chile. Staff on the ground are mobilizing to meet the immediate, basic needs of children and families.

"It happened in the middle of the night. Everyone was sleeping, and there was no time to escape. Many houses are destroyed; even large buildings have collapsed," said Mariela Chavarriga, Emergency Advisor with World Vision in Chile.

Your help is needed now! World Vision will distribute emergency survival kits — including clean water, blankets and tents — to provide immediate aid to affected children and families. We have worked in Chile for 30 years and have more than 100 staff in the country, many living and working in areas close to the quake epicenter. We are also preparing to deploy additional staff to assist in the relief response.

If you can, please donate now to help us meet the urgent needs of Chile's earthquake survivors. And please join us in prayer for hurting children and families in Chile.
