Dear Federacion Ecuatoriana de Taekwondo,
On behalf of the entire global taekwondo families, I wish to express my deepest condolences to the people of Ecuador at this difficult time.
The terrible loss of lives due to the most devastating earthquake is inconceivable, and all taekwondo families are with the families and relatives as they try to come to terms with such a tragic incident.
Please convey the support of the whole Taekwondo family to those affected. I also wish fast recovery of the injured persons and also hope that the families and relatives of the lost lives will be given strengths to bear these difficult times.
World Taekwondo Federation
