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. This fund will provide urgent relief to impacted communities in Mexico through essential food, water, medication, and shelter. In addition, it will also support the long term sustained work necessary for recovery. All donations will exclusively support earthquake recovery efforts.
The Mexico Rises fund was created with backing from Alfonso Cuarón’s production company, Esperanto Filmoj, along with Anonymous Content and Participant Media.
All donations will exclusively support earthquake recovery efforts by local vetted organizations inlcuding Sociedad Mexicana Pro Derechos de la Mujer, A.C. (Semillas).
“The devastating earthquakes in Mexico have elicited a deeply moving response from the Mexican people. In the history of our community, we have never been so informed, united and connected as we are right now. Citizens have taken this matter into their own hands and have selflessly and tirelessly worked together to come to the aid of their neighbors. Following their inspiring lead, I’m compelled to take action and join them to help begin the reconstruction of our beautiful country as it starts to recover from these tragic events.” - Alfonso Cuaron
