Mexico Emergency Relief

Emergency Appeal: Aftershocks and tremors cause anxiety for earthquake victims, the strongest measuring with a magnitude of 6.2 following the second earthquake in Mexico. HHRD's Emergency Response Team (ERT) has moved on from Oaxaca to Mexico City, Puebla and Morelos delivering relief items of food and water to those in need. The death toll has risen to over 360 casualties after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake rocked Mexico City just two weeks after the 8.1 magnitude earthquake outside of Chiapas killing 90 people. Donate to our Mexico Emergency Relief Fund as our Emergency Response Team continues to provide relief on the ground.

Current Situation:

People are in a state of panic and shock as they continue to dig through the rubble alongside government workers. The cities of Puebla, Morelos, Mexico City, and the coastal state of Guerrero have seen immense damage to infrastructure as well as, increased death. There is NO FOOD, NO WATER, NO ELECTRICITY. A collapsed primary school became the scene of horror while children were pulled from the rubble both injured or dead. Widespread loss of power has surrounded the region with darkness.

"This Abuelita (grandmother) came and attempted to give the last of her saving and told me this is for you because you came from so far to see us, thank you. I refused and asked her to give me a priceless kiss instead, she broke down in tears so I kissed her instead and thanked her for her hospitality and the opportunity to visit her and her community.", shares our ERT member Sr. Nahela.

Ironically, the Mexican people were commemorating the September 19th, 1985 earthquake that killed 10,000, injured 30,000 and left hundreds of thousands homeless. Thousands of people are on the streets helping government officials clear debris to help those trapped beneath.
