Challenge

Two major earthquakes have rattled Mexico over the past two weeks, one of them striking on the anniversary of Mexico City's 1985 quake, its largest ever. As people just began to regroup after the first earthquake's destruction, Tuesday's 7.1 magnitude shock downed power lines and leveled buildings including offices, homes, and a school where 21 children died. With many people homeless and at least 200 reported dead, rescuers are working around the clock to look for victims.

Solution

In response to the tragedy, many organizations are accepting donations to help the Mexico City earthquake victims. We are working to aid relief efforts in partnership with local groups of people and organizations. This fund will help any first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter.

Long-Term Impact

We are a Mexican NGO that works with local communities and we can provide long-term support for survivors of the earthquake. Donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. Proforestal will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
