SalvarVidasEc is an initiative led by Guillermo Lasso Mendoza along with a group of Ecuadorian citizens concerned about the current critical situation in Ecuador. The members are: Alfredo Borrero Vega, Carlos Cueva Gonzalez, Iván Baquerizo Alvarado, Angelo Caputi Oyague, Armando Mosquera Viggiani, Hernán Ponce Aray, Aparicio Caicedo Castillo, Guillermo Lasso Alcívar, Santiago Lasso Alcívar, Eduardo Herdocia Pazos.
PwC, PricewaterhouseCoopers, is present in more than 157 countries and in Ecuador since 1969. As independent auditors, PwC guarantees trust, formality and transparency towards donors who join this initiative, knowing first-hand the use of the funds raised.
The main objective of this initiative is to acquire medical supplies and equipment in order to assist all Ecuadorians who need it.
As much as we can. According to Ecuador’s National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INEC), in 2018 Ecuador had 1.4 hospital beds for every 1,000 inhabitants. There are only 1,745 ventilators in Ecuador, 389 intensive care rooms and a total of 1,183 beds in intensive care. Ecuador needs all our help to get medical equipment and supplies.
The Salvar Vidas EC trust is organized in committees responsible for the decision-making process. First, in the Technical Committee, medical specialists decide what medical equipment and supplies need to be purchased. The Purchasing Committee then decides how to allocate the funds raised and makes the purchase order for the products, always with the approval of the Board. Finally, the Advisory Committee ensures that medical equipment is legally and appropriately received in hospitals and health homes. Once delivered, a technician is in charge of the installation and configuration of the equipment so that they work correctly.
We are the 3rd country with the most Covid-19 cases in Latin America. As Ecuadorians we are affected by the reality of our country and we firmly believe that together we can make a difference and help save lives.
