Challenge

On Thursday The 7th of September, Mexico experienced a severe earthquake measuring a magnitude of 8.2. The biggest earthquake experienced since they have been measured. The earthquake has caused widespread damage and devastation across the Mexican South East states. GVI Staff are in contact with local NGO's that are supporting the relief needed by these communities.

Solution

Thousands of people have been left homeless as a result of this disaster and are in need of temporary accommodation in the form of tents especially as storms and possible hurricanes are hitting affected areas. Basic supplies such as water, food and medical necessities are crucial to survival as well as ensuring hygiene and sanitation to limit the spread of disease.

Long-Term Impact

Mexico is going to need a lot of long term support in its recovery from this tragic event and with the support of our local partnerships we are in a strong position to support these efforts long term. We will update this campaign as things progress.
