“45 seconds that changed our lives. Things will not be the same for the people of Manabi, Ecuador, after the earthquake of 16 April 2016. It would probably take 10 or 20 years to be back to normal. Now, more than ever, we’re committed to the rebuilding of the province we were born in and the region we love so much.” – Susana Cardenas, Montecristi Chocolate
