Summary

Mexico was recently hit by massive earthquakes and powerful aftershocks, killing hundreds of people, collapsing buildings and creating devastation in the capital and nearby cities. Homes, schools and hospitals were destroyed in the earthquake. The Mexico Rises fund - created with backing from Alfonso Cuaron's production company, Esperanto Filmoj, along with Anonymous Content and Participant Media - will provide urgent relief to impacted communities as well as support long-term rebuilding.

Challenge

Immediate relief efforts are needed to ensure survivors and first responders receive critical resources, including housing, medical aid, water, and emotional support. Once the immediate needs are addressed, these communities will need ongoing resources in order to re-establish their livelihoods, support communities, and jobs.

Solution

The civil society in Mexico has continued to work together day and night to rescue and to help their fellow citizens. Please help support their heroic efforts by giving what you can today. We are enlisting your help to get aid, food, and supplies to the victims of these terrible earthquakes. All donations will exclusively support earthquake recovery efforts by local vetted organizations including Sociedad Mexicana Pro Derechos de la Mujer, A.C. (Semillas).

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.
