It has been three months since a 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Ecuador, killing more than 660 people.

The disaster left more than 80,000 people homeless, including refugees fleeing violence in neighbouring Colombia.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees recently travelled to the South American country to meet displaced families.
