On Sept. 19, 2017, Mexico City and surrounding states including Morelos and Puebla suffered devastation from a 7.1M earthquake. Hundreds were killed. Homes, schools, and community buildings were destroyed. This followed an 8.1M quake in Oaxaca on Sept. 9. Ford Fund will contribute $200,000 to the United Way in Mexico and will match employee donations to the Mexico Earthquake Relief Fund below, up to $50,000 USD. Our Ford Dealers Civic Committee and Ford Mexico are also providing $200,000 in support to United Way Mexico and towards rebuilding Ford Schools.
This fund will provide immediate relief to survivors: food, shelter, water, and medicine. In addition, it will support longer-term assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations will exclusively support these disasters. Funds raised will be distributed among the following nonprofit partners: Cooperacion Comunitaria A.C., Proforestal AC, IsraAid, Fondo Unido I.A.P., and the International Community Foundation.
